HONORING Amy Halloran upon the occasion of her
designation as recipient of the Sister Mary Coons
Award by The Food Pantries for the Capital District
on October 3, 2019

WHEREAS, It is incumbent upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize and acknowledge those within our midst who have made
significant contributions to the quality of life therein; and

WHEREAS, From time to time, this Legislative Body takes note of
certain extraordinary individuals it wishes to recognize for their
valued contributions to the success and progress of society and publicly
acknowledge their endeavors which have enhanced the basic humanity among
us all; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Amy Halloran upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of the
Sister Mary Coons Award by The Food Pantries for the Capital District,
to be observed at its 8th Annual Harvest Evening Celebration on
Thursday, October 3, 2019, at Franklin Plaza in Troy, New York; and

WHEREAS, The Sister Mary Coons Award is given annually to those who
exemplify the values of The Food Pantries for the Capital District; Amy
Halloran is truly deserving of this prestigious honor for all the work
she has done for Unity House and the lives she has impacted by raising
awareness of food insecurity and encouraging discussion to end hunger;
and

WHEREAS, In addition to her work with Unity House, Amy Halloran has
supported the fight against hunger by running Troy Waterfront Farmers
Market, writing about agriculture, and collecting and redistributing
groceries from an over-productive food system to make meals to share
from her dining room table; and

WHEREAS, This remarkable woman also teaches classes at farming and
food conferences, as well as the Troy Public Library in an effort to
educate others on marketing for farms and food enterprises; in addition
to this, she often weaves together history and personal experiences; and

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown a
long and sustained commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Amy Halloran upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of
the Sister Mary Coons Award by The Food Pantries for the Capital
District; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Amy Halloran.
