GFCI feeding non gfci receptacle up to code

Im installing a recep in my sink base cabinet for the dishwasher and disposal to hookup to. I recently installed a double gang box with 2 gfci's above my counter top. If I feed the receps under the sink off of the load side of the gfci, would that satisfy the requirement for the receps under the sink? Or are they all required to be an actual gfci recep?

The receptacles for the countertop cannot feed under the counter appliances. You you a separate circuit for them.

The GFCI protection can come from an upstream GFCI device or a GFCI circuit breaker. In your case, like PCboss said, you need a new circuit.
