While Governor’s Cuomo’s March 20 Executive Order classified farms, food and beverage manufactures, agri-business, operations responsible for animal health, and related support industries as ‘essential’ and permitted to continue to operate, we know that these are challenging times for our HVADC clients and partner organizations. We know that our Hudson Valley farmers and food makers are essential to the regional food supply chain every day, and now more than ever.
We want to remind you that we are here to assist you in identifying any resources you may need such as information about relief, workforce, financing or technical assistance. Reach out to us if you have questions, need to find a resource, or can share a resource. Working remotely, we can still call or email you.

And just as we are reaching out to you to offer our assistance, we continue to mobilize volunteers and donations for Feed HV. If you can help by making a donation of excess food, please let us know. Now, of course more than ever it is important to keep Feed HV serving the needs of our communities. Learn more at www.feedhv.org.
