NYS Anti-Hunger Task Force
“The New York State Anti-Hunger Task Force will be a key resource and tool in our ongoing efforts to eliminate hunger in New York..”
- Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
Nearly 14% of New York households struggle with hunger
At least 1 million New York children live in households that do not have regular and consistent access to food
Nearly 1 in 4 New Yorkers who are eligible for food stamps do not receive them

The Anti-Hunger Task Force will develop strategies to:

  • Maximize resources to fight hunger in New York State by increasing participation in federally funded programs like SNAP, school breakfast and school lunch;
  • Use public/private partnerships to increase outreach and leverage the power of government, businesses and the non-profit sectors working together; and
  • Improve access to quality, healthy food through the use of New York farm products and locally produced goods to combat hunger while creating jobs and supporting economic development.
