Food Bank of CNY

Retail Partnership Program

In 2010 the Retail Partnership Program (RPP) was created to acquire fresh produce, meat, and dairy products from local retail stores that would typically go to waste. By doing this we have been able to provide fresh and healthy foods to our partner agencies throughout our eleven county service area on a daily basis who, in turn, directly serve their clients. Within Onondaga County, our collaborations with 25 retail partners have enabled us to distribute 988,615 pounds of food directly to 43 emergency food programs in the county.
