We take those words off the page and translate them into action. We listen, we reach out and we DO. We walk our talk. Because IIL Cares.

Volunteer Work with City Harvest
Nearly two million New Yorkers live in poverty, struggling to afford basic necessities such as rent and medical care while trying to put food on their tables. As more people are affected by the recession and high unemployment in New York City, the need for emergency food has increased dramatically.
To help meet their needs, IIL regularly volunteers with City Harvest, the world’s first and New York’s only food rescue organization, to distribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to families who qualify.
To learn about how you can volunteer or donate to support City Harvest’s mission, visit www.cityharvest.org.
