Our sincere thanks to the Manhasset School District, especially the Manhasset High School Interact Club, who recently solicited food at the Manhasset King Kullen Supermarket. During the weekend of Nov. 2 and 3, they raised $501.00 in cash and 30 cartons of food for those in need.

This is the annual Manhasset Thanksgiving Food Drive the students undertake to help the hungry and homeless on Long Island.  The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) packages food cartons for the needy containing all the food necessary to prepare Thanksgiving meals at home.

The INN, a Long Island organization, has fed those in need since 1983. The INN is the largest soup kitchen on Long Island and feeds over 300 meals per day. The INN addresses the issues of hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, clothing, and supporting services in a dignified and respectful manner for those who seek their help.

Many thanks for to the Manhasset community for supporting The INN.
