Hunger Solutions New York

Apr 21, 2015

  Hunger Solutions New York was formed in 1985 as the Nutrition Consortium of New York State. They strive to maximize participation in, and support for, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance. They also work towards the growth of other nutrition assistance programs including the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).

Hunger Solutions New York develops and distributes information and resources for community-based organizations and agencies to use to further the fight against hunger and they manage the Nutrition Outreach and Education Program and the Long Island Anti-Hunger Initiative. Both programs are designed to provide education, support, and assistance connecting New Yorkers to SNAP and other resources to end hunger.

Hunger Solutions New York is hosting two big events this Spring: The 2015 NOEP Outreach Convention on April 22nd and the 2015 New York State Anti-Hunger Conference on May 7th.

Linda Bopp is the Executive Director of Hunger Solutions New York and she joins us now.
