New York State’s Nourish New York program is a lifeline for families and farmers.

For those who are food insecure, this critical program provides access to the nourishment they need while establishing a market for farmers to sell their products. The funding provided allows New York’s emergency food providers, like the Regional Food Bank, to purchase surplus products from New York farmers and dairy manufacturers and deliver it to the communities we serve.

The numbers are shocking — 1 in 4 New Yorkers is considered food insecure. Unfortunately, the demand for healthy food has only been increasing in recent years, but the funding provided has remained flat.

The Regional Food Bank supports the New York Senate and Assembly one-house budget resolutions that would allocate additional money for the Nourish New York program in the FY 2025-25 State Budget. We urge Governor Kathy Hochul to approve this funding as we work to alleviate hunger, prevent food waste and provide nourishment to every single New Yorker.

The ability to provide an assortment of New York-produced nutritious produce, eggs, dairy, and more means as much to the Food Bank and our partners as it does to our neighbors in need.
