New York Food for New York Families


The New York Food for New York Families Program will maintain and improve food and agricultural supply chain resiliency in New York State. This funding is provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement Program (LFPA). The goals of this program are to:

  1. Support local and traditionally disadvantaged farmers/producers by building and expanding economic opportunities and creating new marketing channels.
  2. Establish and broaden partnerships between New York farmers/producers and the food distribution community and local food networks to ensure distribution of fresh nutritious foods in rural, remote, and/or underserved areas.
  3. Improve food access for underserved communities by tailoring distribution to unique local challenges.

Funding Opportunity

In 2022, the Department announced two grant opportunities available through the program. This opportunity is currently closed. Information on a second opportunity will be posted soon.
