State-approved items - if it isn't listed, it's not approved. Don't try to send it. If your LO is in one of the pilot prisons, use the list below:

Allowable items for prisons in the pilot program only as of Dec 1, 2017. 4911A.pdf

All others - http://www.doccs.ny.gov/FamilyGuide/AllowableItems.html

New directive for the pilot program at some prisons. I wish they would give a list of approved vendors. Lots of changes coming in June.

Added to list 12/17. Nim

It is confusing read. I have read it 5 or 6 times and some parts I don't get. Plus I wish there was a comprehensive list of approved vendors. I used one this week to send boots and they were not accepted(had a shank). They better work the kinks out before this goes state wide or people will be very angry.

The 30 pds per package and 8 pounds of food piece times 6 also confuses me.

Unfortunately, I suspect that the item lists change within a vendor - trying to appeal to another state, sourcing or manufacturing change, whatever - so it would never be fully comprehensive anyway. Not to mention the changes states make to their 'permitted' list.
