Hunger Solutions New York is honored to be a member of the New York State Council on Hunger and Food Policy, which held its first meeting Oct. 7. Newly established by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the council will play a key role in advising the state on programs to improve access to healthy, locally grown food in New York. It will build on the work of the New York State Council on Food Policy, which convened in 2007, and the Anti-Hunger Task Force, which convened in 2013.

Winter made an early appearance in New York State. The cold weather forces many people to choose between keeping their home at a safe temperature and buying the food they need to stay healthy. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) can make it possible to do both. Our Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) Coordinators are available statewide to help eligible people apply for SNAP, and can also give referrals for HEAP.
