Food Pantry

Our emergency food pantry provides emergency food for over 15,000 hungry persons each year. During the first seven months of 2001 the pantry experienced a 28% increase in the number of persons served. The pantry operates by referral from social service and religious organizations, is open from 9:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Monday through Friday, and is staffed by volunteers from area churches. Food is received from local congregations, various governmental programs, and purchased from the Food Bank of WNY.
