Today is 7/7 Day of Giving to help FeedMore WNY. Every donation helps FeedMore WNY feed those who need in our communities. Catherine Schick the communications director of FeedMore WNY says when the pandemic hit Western New York they began to see thousands of people reach out to them for the first time. She said they couldn’t do it without the people of Western New York donating, food, funds or their time though volunteerism.
Over the course of just one week in June, FeedMore WNY distributed more than 30,000 home delivered meals. As lockdowns lift, demand for the support in the community is expected to continue. The need for food and security is not going away anytime soon,
We're inviting the City of Good Neighbors and all of Western New York to pitch in through in-person food drives and online donations. To get started, WKBW is calling on the community to match a $12,000 Buffalo Strong commitment to FeedMore WNY. Together, we can double that donation.
Two food drive locations will be available on 7/7.
