- With the holiday season upon us Citizens 4 Humanity
is gearing up to help feed families across the East End. The grassroots organization helps cook and distribute meals to families in need and the ingredients needed to cook the meals are purchased from donations. The donations Citizens 4 Humanity receives to purchase food from local individuals directly determines how many families they can help feed.

Through local schools and community organizations Citizens 4 Humanity finds single parent families who have financial difficulties or are going through a crisis and provide them with a holiday meal from a turkey down to all the delicious side dishes.
Chef Marco Barrila
has been spearheading cooking the holiday meals, which are prepared at Frutti Di Mare
his gourmet take out restaurant, for the past four years.
This year on top of cooking meals for families in need during the holidays, Chef Marco has been busy helping families in need from Superstorm Sandy
which devastated much of the East Coast. Insatiable EATS Catering
which Chef Marco founded was designated as one out of only two food groups as first response for the Red Cross
of Long Island. Since Sandy hit Insatiable EATS Catering has been busy feeding hundreds of people and providing food to the people in shelters.
With Thanksgiving fast approaching Insatiable EATS Catering is getting ready to start giving out holiday meals to single moms and their children and will continue to help feed people displaced from Superstorm Sandy. Citizens 4 Humanity's goal is to feed over 300 families from now until December 31. Chef Marco said, "The only thing we have good left in this difficult time on the planet is people is to help one with each other. If one person would just extend their arms for others, many souls can be satiated."
