For the fifth year in a row, EAC Network received large donations of nutritious, non-perishable food from Island Trees School District in Levittown for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Students at J. Fred Sparke School, Memorial Middle School, and Michael F. Stokes School contributed to the food drive and collected donations. The food will be distributed by EAC Network’s Nutrition Education and Food Services program, which runs the only food pantry solely dedicated to people living with HIV/AIDS in Nassau County.

“The local HIV/AIDS population will not go hungry thanks to the students and teachers at Island Trees School District who have completely re-stocked our food pantry,” said Carol O’Neill, Senior Director of Senior & Nutritional Services at EAC Network.

Once the food made its way to EAC Network, volunteers from the MAC AIDS Fund organized the food pantry so the nutritious goods would be ready for those who need it most.
