President's Message

Happy New Year! We hope your holiday season was full of joy, and we wish you much health and happiness in 2016.

With your support, we were able to make sure that hungry Western New York families received hearty holiday meals. Thank you for your generosity.

Even though what many consider to be “the season of giving” has ended, the need remains. In fact, the Food Bank of WNY assists 116,691 individuals each month. In the cold weeks ahead, many of these individuals will have to choose between heating their homes and purchasing nutritious food. We ask you to remember our neighbors in need, not just during the holidays, but year round.

 Helping can be as easy as supporting the Check Out Hunger campaign when you shop for groceries at participating retailers. Or, enjoy a night on the town with savory food and delicious desserts at our 10th Annual Sweet Charity on February 4th.

Explore our website or call us at (716) 852-1305 to learn about the many ways you can donate food, money, and your time to fighting hunger one day at a time. Thank you for helping us bring hope to hungry families. 

Marylou Borowiak, President & CEO

& the entire staff of the Food Bank of Western New York
