Requests at a food pantry operated by Lutheran Social Services of New York were up 60 percent in the first three months of the year.

“More people are suffering this year and turning to faith-based services like ours to fill the gaps in social services,” said Donald O’Neil of LSS.

To help meet the demand, Team Run2Feed, which included the agency’s CEO and runners from Long Island churches, participated in the Long Island Marathon to raise money for the New LIFE Center Hunger Prevention Site at Grace Lutheran Church, Uniondale, N.Y.
