Emergency in our community: Children are hungry and you can help!
$10 IS ENOUGH TO FEED A CHILD AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
It’s not all Bentleys and ocean front homes in the Hamptons. With over 43,000 food insecure children in Suffolk County, there are pockets of deeply disadvantaged families that need help in the face of the Covid Crisis. Earthworks Services LLC has joined the tremendous efforts of local advocate Marit Molin and her registered 501 (c) (3) Hamptons Art Camp to feed people in need and prevent restaurant layoffs.

How it all Began
Marit, a licensed social worker, founded Hamptons Art Camp after learning there are far too many children spending the summer waiting in either the back of their parent’s vehicle or at home watching TV all day while their peers are playing, swimming and creating.
Pivoting her efforts in the face of the resounding need to feed her community, over the past two weeks alone, Marit and her team of volunteers have provided over 700 meals from local restaurants as well as delivering groceries and over 1700lbs of fresh produce.
What’s Happening Now
To date, 8 local restaurants have been commissioned to participate in the preparation and delivery of food but we are hoping to add more restaurants as well as drop off locations. If you know of, or are a restaurant interested in participating with our efforts please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last week's Deliveries:
Monday- 2200+ donuts to kids getting free lunches in Sag Harbor and Southampton. Also, groceries for 50 families.
