A bite of a cheeseburger will probably never feel this gratifying.

Popular Farmingdale burger joint, Cheeburger Cheeburger, is looking to help Superstorm Sandy victims get back on their feet by donating a portion of its sales Thursday to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund, officials said.

The benefit will run from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and only includes the Farmingdale location.

The restaurant will donate 20 percent of each check from the day’s receipts to the recovery fund.

“There are too many Nassau residents who are still suffering from the impact of Hurricane Sandy,” Nassau County Executive Mangano said in a statement urging residents to help out storm victims by grabbing some grub at the restaurant Thursday.

The fund was created by the county last November to assist residents affected by the historic hurricane, which struck on Oct. 29.

“Priority is given to those applicants who are not entitled to reimbursement from FEMA, do not have homeowners or flood insurance and are not receiving assistance from other government relief programs,” the county said of the relief fund.
