Shoppers helped to fill an 18-wheeler truck with 650 pounds of food items, which were then donated to Bethpage-based Island Harvest. This was the largest quantity Steinway has ever collected since it began its partnership with Move for Hunger seven years ago.
The donations will be distributed to food banks across Long Island over the next several months.
