Feeding America: $1,400,000

Eight-month grant. This grant provided funds for a New York State “Fresh To Go” produce and dairy box program. The program supplied pre-packed boxes of fresh food to our food banks. These boxes were easier for food banks, food pantries and clients to handle, and supported the low-social-contact method of food distribution while the pandemic was ongoing. The dairy and produce going into these boxes originated in New York state, and the boxes were packed by a New York-based company. More than 92,000 Fresh To Go boxes with nearly two million pounds of food were provided to hungry New Yorkers.
