Hunger Action Network of NYS has conducted the survey as part of our 30th anniversary to better inform our advocacy work to increase funding for emergency food programs. The survey also seeks information on additional resources and assistance that EFPs need. The survey pertains specifically to the emergency food aspect of your organization and not your overall organization.
