A Network of New Yorkers Working To End Hunger

Hunger Action Network of New York State was founded in 1982 as a membership organization representing emergency food providers and other concerned individuals and organizations sharing the common goal of ending hunger and its root causes, including poverty.  Our policy work is driven by the will of our members and our approach is a combination of grassroots organizing and public policy research, education and advocacy.


The House narrowly passed their version of the 2018 Farm Bill which has many harmful cuts to SNAP. If enacted millions of at risk poor families would lose or see a reduction in their benefits. Next step, law makers will attempt  merging the Senate bill, which is a much better version for preventing food insecurity, with the House bill.
