Local Hurricane Sandy Relief — Get Involved!

by in Community, November 20th, 2012

Food Network Fans from across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have asked how they can get involved with the Sandy Relief Effort. One of the most effective ways to make a difference is still to make a contribution to the American Red Cross.

If you do have the time to roll up your sleeves and pitch in or wish to deliver physical donations, we’ve compiled a list from relief organizations in the Tri-State area. Check back here to this post for the latest information and please feel free to share other worthy local organizations with specific needs in the Comments below.

For New York-Area folks, we have a great volunteer opportunity calendar that can be found here by clicking through to this link. It provides date, time, remaining volunteer slots, description from now through the rest of the year and updates as we add additional opportunities. All of our volunteer opportunities are in all five boroughs at this time.

This link provides folks with the option to host a virtual or traditional food drive, items urgently needed and how to register a traditional food drive for pick up. We cannot accept food donations via mail.

    Hello Food Network,

    My name is Matthew Condello and for the last Three months I have been working with a non-profit organization based out of Philadelphia called Philabundance. Philabundance helps provided food for less fortunate individuals in the Delaware Valley area. During these three months we have managed to raise over 500lbs of food for starving families/individuals in the Philadelphia area. I know that the effects of Hurricane Sandy have caused many families to be with out food and water, you have been a driving force in the distribution of food to the victims and my group along with Philabundace would love to help in any way we can. I know you have set up multiple locations in the Tri-State where people can drop off food donations. We also have drop off points in schools and churches. We would like to donate some of our canned goods to Food Networks hurricane relief efforts. If Food Network could add our locations to the list that they already have, that would be appreciated. You can contact me at Tuc68322@Temple.edu.

  3. I guess every little bit of effort and help will be very useful here. Getting all those people back on their feet and, hopefully, prepared for a future mega-storm like Sandy is no easy task.
