For the 2.2 million people living in New York households that struggle with hunger, COVID-19 continues to present unique challenges. Hunger Solutions New York is working to provide updates that can help community partners and families mitigate the projected impact of the pandemic on food insecurity in their area.
Join us for a presentation and an open conversation about ways libraries can help alleviate hunger and increase nutrition security by easily helping families connect with underserved programs such as WIC, SNAP, and summer meals. Bring your questions, chat with peers, and learn about new resources and flexibilities available now to help connect kids and families with the food they need.
