The Food Bank is proud to collaborate with other Western New York organizations to help serve those in need.
Goodwill Industries of Western New York, Inc.:
Urban Opportunities Food Pantry
The Urban Opportunities Food Pantry opened at Goodwill Industries of WNY, Inc. seven years ago and targets an underserved population of individuals that are in programs at Goodwill as well as those individuals in the surrounding community. The pantry is convenient for those Goodwill clients who are in training as they do not have to leave the facility and miss time at work and/or time training.
Each fall, Meals on Wheels participants are advised to stock up on emergency foods for the winter months. In addition, "Blizzard Boxes" are assembled by the Food Bank, containing a two-day supply of canned goods. The boxes are delivered in the fall to participants who are most at-risk and to various police stations throughout our service area.
