What We Do

Soup Kitchen
The problem of hunger touches all ages, races, and nationalities, even on the North Shore of Long Island. The North Shore INN serves over 15,000 meals annually, including Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday dinners with all the trimmings. Regular meals are served Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon to 1:00PM. Much of the food served is donated by individuals, schools, religious organizations, businesses and community groups. As government and social service cutbacks force people living on the brink to choose between shelter and food, more new faces appear at our soup kitchen every week. Here they receive a nutritious hot meal, served with respect and good cheer. For many of our guests who are lonely or homeless, the INN means more than a meal... it may be their only human contact in a day.

Breakfast Program
In cooperation with La Fuerza Unida, a local support agency for Latin Americans, volunteers from the North Shore INN and AHRC prepare sandwiches three mornings a week for day workers who gather at the Glen Cove Shape-Up Center in hopes of being hired for landscaping or other work. This may be their only meal of the day.

Support Services
The North Shore INN focuses on the causes of homelessness, empowering families to become self-sufficient. In addition to food, we offer help and support connecting our guests to various community services. The North Shore INN is a member of the Glen Cove Interagency Council. Through its member agencies, the Inn's volunteer Advocates can direct guests to a wealth of government and community resources. These may include social services, legal help, housing, education, senior activities, parenting and youth programs, as well as medical, mental health, and veterans' programs.
