AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — On Saturday, May 16th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a food drive will be held at 4558 Bailey Avenue in Amherst (next to Whole Foods).

Canned fruits and vegetables, proteins and all other non-perishable food items are being accepted.

The donations are going to Feedmore WNY.

The drive is co-sponsored by Kissed By The Sun Spices, a local spice company that is just looking to give back.

"Bring the community together and let people know that we will make it through this," said Co-owner Richard Fickhesen.

For those that cannot make it to the drive, donations are also being accepted at the link here.
