The fundraiser is to support EAC. Founded in 1969, EAC Network is a not-for-profit human service agency with a network of 70 programs throughout Long Island and New York City. Last year EAC Network helped over 57,400 people of all ages. Our mission is to respond to human needs with programs and services that protect children, promote healthy families and communities, help seniors and empower individuals to take control of their lives.

The list of VENDORS includes local Long Island authors and artists, jewelry makers, an Angel Card reader, a pet portraitist, a fabulous new clothing line for woman on the go, makeup, a psychic and medium, and original gift cards. Artists include watercolor, landscapes and a fascinating combination of photography and painting. Fair goers will recognize many of the authors and artists from other events. Items for purchase are varied to appeal to all tastes.

There will be RAFFLES, donated by the vendors, DEMONSTRATION by some of the vendors, and a CHANCE TO DONATE TO EAC, SEE EACINC.ORG.

Bayard Cutting Arboretum was donated to the Long Island State Park Region by Mrs. William Bayard Cutting and her daughter, Mrs. Olivia James, in memory of her husband, William Bayard Cutting. The intent of the donation was “to provide an oasis of beauty and quiet for the pleasure, rest and refreshment of those who delight in outdoor beauty; and to bring about a greater appreciation and understanding of the valdownload (8)ue and importance of informal planting.”

The Nutrition Education & Food Services Program fights hunger using food as medicine. Clients report that they no longer worry about where their next meal is coming from.

The Nutrition Education & Food Services Program delivers meals to the homes of people living with HIV/AIDS who are home-bound and are too ill to cook and shop for themselves. The program provides nutrition assessments & ongoing nutrition counseling and also operates the only food pantry in Nassau County that supplies weekly grocery bags for persons living with HIV/AIDS.  Eligible food pantry recipients live in Nassau County. Eligible home-delivered meal recipients live in Hempstead, Freeport, Roosevelt, Westbury and New Cassel. Nearby areas may also qualify; inquire with our staff for eligibility. Dependant children are also fed through the program, which has been in operation since 1992.

Menus are planned by a nutritionist to guarantee that nutrition and special dietary needs are met, and are delivered directly to client homes. Through this program, clients recieve highly nutritious meals. Food deliveries also provide a chance to visit and make sure everything is all right. Based on availibility, pet food is provided for those with cats and dogs.

The changing face of HIV/AIDS is reflected in the population served; the majority, 93%, is from the minority community; composed of African American and Latino individuals between the ages of 25 and 60 with incomes at or below the poverty level.   Clients also include a significant number of single mothers with dependent children. These children are also provided with supplemental food for weekends and emergency needs.
In 2007, EAC Network’s Nutrition Education & Food Services Program was awarded the Congressional Hunger Award for helping to eliminate hunger and malnutrition for persons who are suffering from HIV/AIDS.
