The Cause

  • Taste of the South Shore was inspired to support our local restaurant industry who are still hurting and need help.  There are no local organizations who provide assistance to our restaurants and bars who are still hurting and trying to recover from the last 19 months.  Every ticket sold puts money back to supporting our downtown dining districts and the fight against food insecurity!
  • Proceeds will benefit both:
    • Island Harvest and the fight against food insecurity
    • Discover Long Island’s “Downtown Deals” program
