We’ve united to expand beyond plates and pantries!
Together, we can:
Put food on more tables.
Provide companionship to more homebound neighbors.
Inspire brighter futures for those who seek to provide for themselves.
In 2021, our feeding programs served more than 1.3 million meals to homebound neighbors and older adults.
Also in that same year, we distributed 13.7 million pounds of food through nearly 400 pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and other hunger-relief agencies throughout Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties!
Our expanded meal services deliver more than just healthy food.read more

From now through Sunday, June 18, donate at the register of Wegmans stores in Western New York to support our BackPack Program!
Many children in Western New York who rely on free or reduced-price school meals may be left without sufficient food on the weekends or holidays when school is closed.
FeedMore WNY’s BackPack Program assists students by providing easily prepared, nutritious food in take-home bags each Friday throughout the school year and over the summer.
The annual Sweet Expectations event, held May 18 at The Powerhouse, featured bubbly drinks, delectable dishes and divine desserts from premier local establishments in support of the mission of FeedMore WNY.
Photos from the event will be posted as they become available on this site as well as on our social media outlets.

Since March of 2020, SNAP recipients in New York have received an Emergency Allotment (EA) benefit due to COVID-19. On March 1, 2023, those additional SNAP dollars stopped.
The end of the Emergency Allotment benefit means every SNAP household will see a decrease of at least $95 per month in benefits. For others, the decrease will be much larger.
If you are in need of additional assistance due to the loss of EA benefits, FeedMore WNY’s SNAP Emergency Allotments resource guide provides information and resources to help.
FeedMore WNY’s mission is to offer dignity, hope and a brighter future by providing nutritious food, friendship and skills training to our Western New York neighbors in need.
FeedMore WNY believes that to solve hunger, we must acknowledge that the struggle against hunger, poverty, injustice, and hopelessness are one and the same. We envision a future in which all are treated with dignity, food access and equity are recognized as human rights, and every person is empowered to have hope and thrive.
