Buffalo Station: Food Pantry of WNY

Friday, April 13, 2018

The Buffalo Station helped the Food Bank of WNY bag up 600 bags of food filled with food items for the Food Bank's backpack program. The backpack program is aimed at eliminating childhood hunger via providing backpacks to children in need on a Friday before the child goes home so that the child has a ready source of food available through the weekend. The Western New York community does a fantastic job providing meals to children in need during the school week- often providing breakfast, lunch and dinner for many children, however there is still a gap to fill during the weekend.

They offer three main service areas, which include: housing, income and benefits, and service coordination. Since opening in 1982, they have expanded their services to not only encompass an emergency shelter, but to take a holistic approach in ending homelessness.
