“More than 79,500 children in FeedMore WNY’s service area may be at risk of hunger in 2020 because of the COVID-19 health crisis. At FeedMore WNY, we work tirelessly to help ensure no child – or community member of any age – has to struggle with hunger. We are grateful to the Independent Health Foundation, the Buffalo Bills Foundation and WIVB-TV News 4 for holding ‘Huddle for Hunger’ to provide nourishing food to children and families in need throughout Western New York,” Tara A. Ellis, president and CEO of FeedMore WNY, said.
FeedMore WNY’s services include youth-related programs to support children and their families in Western New York in need of both healthy and accessible meals. FeedMore WNY’s BackPack Program, designated baby needs pantries as well as high school and college food pantries provide nutritious food and support to those who need assistance.
FeedMore WNY provides nutritious food and support to hungry community members of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances. The nonprofit continues to seek food and funding donations and volunteers to continue its pandemic response. Before the pandemic, as many as 135,000 individuals in any given month relied on FeedMore WNY’s services. Since March, thousands more people have been reaching out for food assistance due to the COVID-19 health crisis.
