NOURISH NEW YORK

Governor Cuomo's Nourish New York Initiative is a lifeline for our families and our farmers who have been struggling with changes brought on by COVID-19. This critical program helps people who are food insecure to access the nourishment that they need, while providing a market for farmers to sell their products. The program provides funding to food banks for the purchase of agricultural food products such as produce, meat, eggs, seafood, and dairy products from New York State farms and processors. The items are available to our partner agencies at no cost. Listed below is our current inventory of Nourish NY items as well as items expected to be received soon:

NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION REUSABLE BAGS

Thank you for your interest in receiving reusable bags for your pantry clients. Our first shipment, which took place in early March, was a limited amount of bags. The bags received have already been distributed. However, we have been assured by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation that more bags will be delivered to the Food Bank soon. We do not know the anticipated date of arrival yet. Once the bags arrive at the Food Bank, a plan for distribution will be put in place.

We appreciate your cooperation during this time. For questions or more information, please contact our Agency Relations Department at (315) 437-1899 ext. 256.
