As part of its Building Healthy Communities priority area, NYSHealth supported a wide range of projects to increase residents’ access to healthy, affordable food options. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 NYSHealth also made a series of rapid response grants to support food access-related efforts around New York State. Learn more about our grantees’ work:
