State Grants for NY Grocers Selling Local Food

April 1, 2011 at 4:01 pm Leave a comment

The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets on Wednesday announced a program to encourage food retailers to source and market local food.  Grocers that promote locally grown or made in New York food products are eligible for up to $5,000 grants under a “Pride of New York” retail promotion program.

The grants, which must be matched by the recipients, will be awarded on a first come, first served basis to individual food stores and grocery chains in New York State.  A total of $43,172 is available for the one-time program.

Grant recipients can use the funding to supplement existing consumer-focused programs or to initiate new “buy local” retail efforts.  No more than $350 per individual store will be awarded.
