Cuomo: All SUNY and CUNY schools to have food pantry by end of fall semester

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that 100 percent of all New York State public colleges will have a food pantry or stigma-free food access for students in need by the end of the fall semester.

This will be the first program in the nation that offers a comprehensive program to combat student hunger.

These services are part of the Governor’s “No Student Goes Hungry Program.”
