State money helps food banks across New York

State money helps food banks across New York

In the wake of federal cuts to food assistance programs, Governor Cuomo is looking to ease the burden for families across New York.

The governor recently announced the state is donating nearly five million dollars to food banks to help make up for cuts to the federal food assistance program, and about $180,000 of that is going to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

Public Relations Manager Missy Goetschius says the money will help their agency help those in need during a tough time for poorer New Yorkers.

Governor Cuomo is urging New Yorkers to help the needy this Thanksgiving week by donating to a food bank.
