No Student Goes Hungry NY!
Hunger is a reality fo r1 in 5 children in Broome County and nearly 2.7 million people in NY State. In 2018 Governor Cuomo passed the 15th Proposal, No Student Goes Hungry NY, which details a five-point plan to fight food insecurity across the state. This piece of legislation invests in Farm to School work that supports school nutrition programs, agriculture in NY state, and student health and well-being.
