Stories of Hope & Courage

We know ensuring you and your family have food in the refrigerator and on the table has become more challenging. This is a reality for countless people in our area and for many this is a newfound struggle. We invite you to share your story, telling us about your personal experience with how Food Bank of Central New York, your local food pantry or SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) has helped you make ends meet so that you aren’t skipping meals or that your children aren’t going to bed hungry. This will help us continue our work to provide central and northern New York with nutritious food. 

With your permission, we may share your story with our elected officials, foundations, and donors to help secure funding to strengthen and improve nutrition programs that support our work and continue to make sure you have the food that you and your family needs.
