Local Food Pantry Contact Information

NEW: The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and Department of Health provided additional details on the distribution of the $25 million Nourish New York initiative, as announced yesterday by Governor Cuomo.

The Nourish New York initiative will help quickly reroute New York's surplus agricultural products to the populations who need them most through New York's network of food banks. Funding will be allocated regionally and based on need, from the State's special public health emergency fund, for food banks and emergency food providers across the state. Nourish New York will be a lifeline for our families and our farmers who have been struggling with changes brought on by COVID-19. 

Emergency food providers can spend the money in a variety of ways, including drive-through giveaways, handing out dairy vouchers to be redeemed at grocery stores, and buying products directly from New York dairy and food manufacturers to use for their feeding programs.

Of the $25 million total, the Capital/Hudson Valley Region will receive $4,357,115. 




If you're struggling to put food on the table during these difficult times or if you're looking for a way to donate extra food and give back to our community, here is a comprehensive list of the food pantries in our district. In order to maintain safe social distancing, please call before going to any of these locations. If you have more questions, give my district office a call at 845-561-1259.
