Local Food Pantry Contact Information
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.
