Nourish New York Private Donations: $300,000

Six-month grant. As part of former Governor Cuomo’s pandemic response, he asked New Yorkers to make private donations to a Nourish New York fund. This fund was administered by Feeding New York State to provide operational aid to food pantries and other charity food programs, such as equipment purchases or vehicle rentals. The goal was to enable volunteer-operated community programs to provide more food to those in need.
