To protect our clients and volunteers, Buffalo Food Shelf is implementing the following policy effective ‪Monday, March 16, 2020:

1. Only 5 clients will be allowed inside the food shelf building at a time. All others will need to remain inside their vehicle.

2. Only 1 household member will be allowed inside the building. Please refrain from bringing children. While inside the building, please keep a minimum of 6 feet between other persons inside the food shelf.

3. If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, please send an adult to pick up for you.


Our volunteers are sanitizing all items and surfaces that have been touched, including carts, pens and chairs. We may need to change this policy or implement new ones during this unprecedented and ever-changing time. Thank you to our clients & volunteers for doing your part in helping to keep our food shelf healthy and safe for everyone.
