The Hofstra Women’s Basketball team, off to the best start in school history at 8-1, recently spread some holiday cheer as they were involved in a toy distribution at the Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead on Tuesday, December 19.


The Interfaith Nutrition Network addresses the issues of hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, long-term housing and supportive services in a dignified and respectful manner for those who seek our help. It is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization with a dedicated staff, a broad base of community support and a commitment to educate the public about these issues.
