The American Farm Bureau Federation recognized New York Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) program for its efforts to donate more than eight million pounds of food to the regional food banks across the state last year.
Dan Egan, Executive Director of Feeding New York State, said, “New York’s food banks are so grateful to our farm partners for another fantastic year. It is remarkable that in a year marked by challenging weather and dominated by a historic pandemic, New York’s farmers continued their tradition of generous giving to our neighbors in need. We could not do our jobs if farmers did not do theirs. We at Feeding New York State thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ”
