The current COVID-19 pandemic is taking a horrific heavy toll on our residents, individuals and families alike. However, looking out for and working together we will get through it. The trauma of the heavy loss of lives, in itself, is particularly tragic and horrific, and sadly beyond the control of most of us, and we are mourning those losses together.
For our community members, the challenges facing us are enormous, but not insurmountable, and John J. Byrne Community Center is here to assist wherever possible.
As a community service, The Community Education and Health Benefits Administration of NYULangone at Winthrop University Hospital has compiled a list of Nassau County Food Pantries to inform those needing food assistance. The information is accurate as of today, but bear in mind that they are subject to change.
A directory of food pantries in the Uniondale and neighboring communities is available here. We recommend calling them to find out their opening hours before going.
