Hello Community Service Volunteers,
I'm a volunteer with Long Island Food Not Bombs (LIFNB.com).
We have Free Food Shares throughout Long Island and Brooklyn.
(Free Food, Clothing, Books, Baby Items, Household Items, Art, etc.)
Depends what donations we get from stores, churches, neighbors and volunteers. Usually there are fruits, vegetables, milk, dairy, bread, cakes, pies, canned and dry goods, pet food, etc. We also have clothes, household & baby items, books, art, etc. depending what is brought to the Food Shares that day.
Ask for Volunteer Jon or Vincent if you would like to volunteer and join us feed the needy. Say hello for me.
Thank you, Volunteer Dennis
