Long Island Food Not Bombs, one of the largest food distribution services on the Island, distributed more than 50,000 pounds of food in one hour during a “food share” in Hempstead last month.

The Nov. 24 food share, just four days before Thanksgiving, attracted more than 2,500 needy Long Islanders who were able to pick up a week’s worth of groceries and enjoy hot vegan meals for Thanksgiving.

An estimated 2 million pounds of food has already been distributed to low income residents this year alone.

Check out the video from the Nov. 24 food share:
