Permalink New York Announces Funding for Food Hubs

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced recently that $3.6 million in state funding awarded through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process will be used to create food distribution hubs across the state. Four new facilities will be funded in Central New York, the Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley, and the North Country, in addition to an earlier food hub project on Long Island, creating more than 150 jobs in these regions and increasing access to healthy, local products for New York consumers. "These four new food distribution hubs are an important investment in our state’s agricultural sector and economy," Governor Cuomo said. "Not only will more than 150 jobs be created through these new projects, the hubs will also be essential resources for local farmers by providing services like branding, processing and storage. Above all, they will help distribute products, expanding consumer markets for New York farmers while improving access to healthy, fresh and locally-produced food for our families – a real win-win for the state."
