What can public libraries do to combat food insecurity on Long Island? Many libraries provide meals to their patrons on a regular basis, what other resources can we provide? Graduate students from the Master's Program in Public Health at Stony Brook University, James Stork and Peter Hong, will share their research on food insecurity.  Tommi-Grace-Grace Melito, SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Coordinator for Health and Welfare Council of Long Island, will provide information on SNAP and other nutrition programs.
