Emergency Food Pantry and Nutrition Workshops
The Central Islip Civic Council runs an emergency food pantry for individuals and families in need. In addition, we have a large vegetable garden which helps to provide additional fresh herbs and produce. The pantry is open to Central Islip residents on Thursdays from 10am until 3:30pm. The Central Islip Civic Council partners with Cornell Cooperative Extension, which provides free nutritional workshops to families.
The Council provides emergency food to over 4,000 needy adults and children in the Central Islip Community. The Council also runs a thrift store that provides very low cost clothing and household items for our residents. All proceeds help support our food pantry. The Council also has its own organic vegetable garden that helps us provide fresh herbs and produce. Long Island Cares, Island Harvest and Cornell Cooperative Extension are partners with the Civic Council to educate the community with Nutritional workshops.
