Our Efforts With Long Island Cares, Inc.

     At Botticelli, we understand the importance of good and healthy food. Unfortunately, many people across the United States suffer from food insecurity and never experience the joy of a home-cooked meal. At Botticelli, we believe that there is something special about a home-cooked meal. It's a meal that's prepared with love and care, and it's often shared with loved ones. However, it's disheartening to know that many individuals in the United States are unable to experience this simple pleasure due to food insecurity. It's a sad reality that so many people go through life without ever having the opportunity to enjoy a warm, delicious, and nutritious meal made at home. 

    Knowing this, Botticelli has decided to partner with a local food bank, Long Island Cares, Inc., to help combat food insecurity on Long Island, New York.

    Their mission is “to bring together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry and food insecure on Long Island and, to the best of our ability, provide for the humanitarian needs of our community. Our goals are to improve food security for families, sponsor programs that help families achieve self-sufficiency, and educate the public about the root causes and consequences of hunger on Long Island.” (www.licares.org)

 

    In November of 2021, we posted a Give Back Social Ad which engaged our followers to like, comment, and share our post. For every one of those engagements they participated in, we donated a dollar! Just from this post, we were able to donate over $900.

    In September of 2023, we donated 6,444 lbs., which equates to 3,232 jars of pasta sauce! As one of the most vital components in their client’s diets, this contribution helped them tremendously.

    In November of 2023, the Botticelli team got together in a big way. We spent time boxing, packing, and stacking Thanksgiving kits packed with delicious goodies. We also participated in their Pack It Up For Kids program, which helps pack kids’ meals so they have access to enough food for six meals and two snacks per child. Together, the team packed about 80 Thanksgiving meals and about 315 kids’ meals.

What some of our Team had to say about the event:

“Our team at Botticelli Foods greatly appreciates our partnership with Long Island Cares. We take great pride in supporting the fight against food insecurity and glad to do our part to help support the local community!” – Joseph A.

 

I was impressed by so many things during our company volunteer outing to Long Island Cares; 1) How deep of an impact the LI Cares team makes in so many lives in our community, 2) How much of an impact even a 'small company' can have when they prioritize their values over their day to day business to-do's, and 3) Just how FUN and FULFILLING it can be when you sink your hands into some 'give-back' type of work." – Christian S.

 

“What an amazing day dedicated to the fight against food insecurity at Long Island Cares with an even more amazing team, the Botticelli Team!   Alone, we may accomplish so little, but together, we can accomplish so much.” – Kelly A.

 

“My experience volunteering at Long Island Cares felt like the perfect way to give back to the community during the holiday season. It was wonderful to know that the meals we packed would feed many hungry kids, and it was great to come together as a team to build weekend meals and Thanksgiving dinners for people who needed it.” – Laura C.

 

“Long Island Cares has a wonderful mission, and it was great to partner with them to serve our community!” – Casey S.

 

“It was an honor and inspiration helping our local community through Long Island Cares! It was amazing seeing how we could come together as a team to help those in need. I can’t wait to see what else we can do for the community in the near future.” – Leona X.

 

“It was great working together with “Long Island Cares” packing lunches for kids in need. Looking forward to continuing our Botticelli Family partnership with a great organization that truly makes a difference in our community!” – Anthony I.

 

    We cannot wait to see how this partnership evolves in the future and what amazing events we will participate in in the coming years.
