Will you join in?

This year is Feeding America’s 40th anniversary and with more than 40 million people receiving food assistance, we are calling on everyone to act. Help us reach our goal of 40,000 actions by volunteering, donating or posting on social media. This September, we can all do our part to end hunger – one helping at a time.

Every Action Counts

During Hunger Action Month, the Feeding America network of 200 food banks challenge you to help hit our goal of 40,000 actions to end hunger. With every action, we get one step closer to making hunger in America a thing of the past. It all starts with you!


How Do I Help with Limited Time?

The food shelf is always in need of items to keep the shelves stocked. So, how can you help? How about a food drive?

Everyone is eligible to help with a fundraiser for the Buffalo Food Shelf- we welcome individuals and groups. The type of campaign you do, is entirely up to you. An office food drive, a birthday donation, company matching program, etc. We depend on people like you for support.
