Twenty-month grant. This grant is a major part of New York State’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides funding to the ten member food banks of Feeding New York to purchase New York State-produced farm products. This accomplishes two goals: it provides market support to farmers, fishermen and food processors who have been impacted by the economic effects of the pandemic while getting high-quality food to New Yorkers who are food insecure. Many of those receiving food are newly hungry due to job losses caused by the pandemic.
