Tell New York State to Buy Local


Encouraging state agencies to buy more food produced in New York was a priority American Farmland Trust’s our No Farms No Food® Rally in Albany, New York this winter. Thanks to your help, the Food Metrics Bill S. 4061/A. 5102 gained traction during the final weeks of this legislative session, passing the New York State Senate on June 12 and the State Assembly on June 20. The bill is now awaiting Governor Cuomo’s signature.

The Food Metrics Act requires state agencies to track the state’s food purchasing practices and encourage state institutions to buy more food grown on New York farms. Please help New York’s farmers increase their sales while getting fresh, nutritious food grown in New York to people served by our state institutions. Contact Governor Cuomo and urge him to sign this important legislation into law.
