Community partners: For the 2.2 million people living in NYS households who struggle against hunger, COVID-19 presents unique challenges. As more schools, child care centers, and meal sites are impacted, additional families may lose access to the programs that improve their nutrition, health, and well-being. Hunger Solutions New York is working to provide updates on the operation of federal nutrition assistance programs that can help schools, community organizations, and families mitigate the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on the food security of low-income people.
Hunger Solutions works to promote and maximize participation in key federal nutrition assistance programs.
