President’s Message

Happy holidays from all of us at the Food Bank of WNY!

Throughout the next few weeks, many of us will take time to enjoy the holidays with our families, friends and loved ones. Food often plays a central role at these gatherings, and no occasion seems to be complete without sitting down to break bread and share an abundant feast together.

During this time of celebration, we must not forget our less fortunate neighbors. For the 1 in 8 Western New Yorkers who are at risk of hunger, a plentiful holiday meal is not a given. Your gift of food, funds or your time can provide nourishment and hope to our struggling community members. Please refer to our upcoming events for fun, meaningful ways to get involved. We always accept donations at our facility at 91 Holt St., Buffalo, NY 14206 as well as through our website.  With your help, we can ensure more of our neighbors are able to focus on making beautiful holiday memories instead of worrying about where their next meal will come from.

If you are unable to give this season, it is never too late to help. The Food Bank needs community support as we work to fulfill our mission all year long. Every dollar raised, every item donated and every hand extended in help makes a tangible difference. We appreciate your partnership now and in the future as we continue to fight hunger one day at a time.

Sincerely,

Tara A. Ellis
President & CEO
