Join us for an evening with State Assemblywoman, Catalina Cruz (D-NY) to learn more about New York’s new program to combat food insecurity. Nourish New York connects farmers and agricultural producers with food relief organizations.

“The Nourish New York program strengthened our state’s food supply network at a time when our friends and neighbors were most in need,” Assemblymember Cruz said. “But hunger does not end with the pandemic. This program helps combat food insecurity in our communities, while building new markets for our state’s farm products.”

Cruz is joined by her Chief of Staff, Robyn Enes ’00, social work and women’s studies alumna. Together they will discuss their recent tour of farms in Upstate New York and leadership on addressing food insecurity during the pandemic and today.
