This Week's Resources

If you have resources to share with our network, please contact Tobi Mojeed-Balogun our Associate Director of Programs Support.


NYS COVID Mandate Updates


A lot of the news around mandates and restrictions have been a little confusing so I will list some resources below that might help.

  • PIX11 COVID Updates - kind of NYC-centric but state information is included. Link here.

  • NYS Department of Health COVID website - It's a one stop shop with an info summary at the top. Link here.

If you have any other resources, please feel free to share them with me so I can share them with everyone!

NYSHealth Foundation Virtual Conference: "What’s in Store for New York’s Food Future?"


NYS Health will be holding a virtual conference on "the federal and state policies and pilot programs that can have a positive impact on New York’s food future." Panelists will discuss the role states have in: tackling food and nutrition security, scaling and replicating medically tailored meals and nutritious food referral programs, and Developing policy pathways that will enable the permanent provision of free school meals for all New York State public school students. If this is something you are interested or you would like to learn more about the program click here for the link to register and the full agenda.


Fundraising Series for DYCD Contracted Organizations


The Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) will be offering an educational series about creating "more effective, equitable, and sustainable" fundraising efforts. The second session was on the 10th but the third session (March 31) is about hiring and supporting development staff in order to maintain retention (you can register here). The last session (April 5) is a panel about fundraising during challenging times. They will be pulling from experiences learned during the pandemic. You can register for the last session here.
