Citizens 4 Humanity would like to thank the community for the support in helping to provide platters and trays of food to struggling single mom families for the holidays. These families were extremely appreciative and received a holiday experience that they would not have had otherwise. And we would like to give a special thanks to the businesses who generously donated food and other items to the families: in Sag Harbor, Restaurant Depot on Long Island, Frutti Di Mare of Hampton Bays, Insatiable EATS Catering of Southampton. Also the following stores donated gifts to the children include: Henry Hildreth of , , Little Suzy's, in Southampton, Skidmore's Sports in Hampton Bays, the in Sag Harbor.
Since the start of our mission, we have received long lists from the school districts of families with "empty refrigerators" who are struggling to buy even canned or boxed foods. These families have to make choices between buying milk or bread or eggs because they simply cannot afford it. And most of the food they buy offers low nutritional value. The children are going to school hungry and then to bed at night hungry.
Citizens 4 Humanity is starting a year round program to help feed these families. Chef Marco Barrila and his kitchen staff at in Hampton Bays will prepare Mediterranean spaghetti dinners with sauces of bolognese (meat ragu), primavera (vegetables) and pomodoro (tomato, basil) that come complete with salad and toasted garlic bread. Families will pick up from Frutti Di Mare restaurant weekly as donations allow. We are asking community members to sponsor families to feed as many families as possible. This program will work purely from donations and community support. The cost to prepare these dinners are $5/p. Community members can send donations directly to the restaurant at 105 West Montauk Highway, B2, Hampton Bays, NY 11946 or deliver directly to the Frutti Di Mare kitchen. With hundreds of people on the list, we hope that everybody will help the cause.
Again from the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank those who help to feed people in distress. Even in these bad times and economy, we hope that 2012 can be another milestone for us ... and success to help others. We would like thank everyone again who have given help with these efforts.
