Food Bank of Central New York awarded $3.1M from state
The Food Bank of Central New York is getting $3.1 million from the state.
Oneida, Madison and Lewis counties are part of the area served by the group that’s based in the Syracuse area. It serves as the main food distribution hub for hundreds of partner agencies that comprise the emergency food network in its 11-county territory.
The money is coming through the Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program, which is administered by the state Department of Health, according to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s announcement.
Overall, $36.5 million in statewide funding is going to eight regional food banks and more than 2,600 food pantries and soup kitchens, which together provide more than 216 million meals a year to low income New Yorkers.
Food$en$e, which provides a monthly box of staple grocery items at a discounted price, is a Food Bank of Central New York program. There are no qualifications, subscriptions or requirements to participate in Food $en$e.
