Governor Andrew Cuomo is encouraging New Yorkers to donate to your local food banks to help feed those who may be struggling to afford healthy meals.
A combination of winter weather and cuts to the federal Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), food banks across the state are expecting to see increased demand in the coming months.

“With the combination of cuts to the federal SNAP program and an approaching winter season, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers support their local food bank,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York’s food banks serve a variety of vulnerable populations across the state, including senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and low income families – many of whom have already been impacted by federal SNAP reductions. By purchasing a few extra items to donate when grocery shopping, we can all do our part to put food on the table of those in need this holiday season.”

New York has eight regional food banks that support over 2,500 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters that feed more than 3 million people per year.

To donate to the Food Bank of Central New York you can call 315-437-1899 or log on to the Food Bank of Central New York Website
