Growing up as the youngest of 17 children taught Arthur Lee Butler skills that serve him well to this day. “I learned collaboration and negotiation,” our recently hired contract manager said with a smile. In his new position, Arthur oversees the daily management of 17 Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) Coordinators.

The holiday season is traditionally a time when our nation pays special attention to alleviating hunger. Yet hunger is a year-round phenomenon. Shortly after the holiday season ends, the new Congress and President-elect Trump will be sworn in and begin making key decisions on programs that affect the lives of so many who are food-insecure. We call on them to recommit America to one of its most important and widely agreed-upon beliefs with deep and long-standing bipartisan support – that nobody in our nation should go hungry. Nearly 3 million people struggle with hunger in New York State alone. More than 900,000 of them are children.

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.
