Become our advocate!

Advocacy is an essential part of fighting hunger – in Western New York and beyond. You can advocate on behalf of our hungry neighbors in a variety of ways, including:

  • Contacting your elected officials about hunger issues that affect your community. (Not sure who your representatives are? Click here to find out.)
  • Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper to raise awareness about hunger and how to help.
  • Posting and sharing stories about hunger and relief efforts on social media.
  • Talking about hunger with your family, friends, coworkers or community groups.

People from all walks of life rely on SNAP food assistance to afford groceries. And kids rely on school meals to learn and thrive in the classroom. Without these programs, they may go hungry. FeedMore WNY isn’t going to sit by and let that happen. As part of the Feeding America network of 200 food banks serving every county in this country, we are fighting back and we hope you’ll join us.
