Supporting our communities during the pandemic

Food is the most basic of all needs. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 14 percent of New York households struggled with hunger, and at least one million New York children lived in households that did not have regular and consistent access to food, according to the New York State Anti-Hunger Task Force. Over the last few months, as New York state's unemployment rate increased, many more families struggled to regularly have food on the table. Local food banks and pantries are straining to meet the new demand.

That's why we provided $600,000 in financial support to food banks and pantries across upstate New York as part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 challenges community to meet families' most basic need: healthy food

"Our priority in the crisis continues to be taking care of the customer and making sure members have access to the care they need," CEO Chris Booth said.

As a result, we provided more than one million dollars in grants for testing supplies and personal protective equipment to upstate New York hospitals and area health care workers. Additionally, we are working with regional business organizations to help businesses reopen to aid employees as they return to work.
