about

facilities

There are a lot of elements that must be in place to ensure we can deliver on our promise of more food, more good. The terrific team members – staff, board, community ambassador council, committee members and thousands of volunteers –  who keep FeedMore WNY moving utilize a full fleet of commercial and passenger vehicles along with state-of-the-art facilities, including a full commissary, Community Center, and two warehouses.

FeedMore WNY commissary

Every meal for FeedMore WNY’s meal delivery program is prepared in our 24,000 square-foot facility, making it possible to serve thousands of meals per day to homebound and mobile older adults.

The FeedMore WNY Commissary is: 

  • A $7.5 million facility containing $2 million worth of modern cooking equipment to increase production capabilities and reduce overhead costs.
  • An efficient centralized meal production facility providing meals for our meal delivery and nutrition programs, including nursing homes, food pantries and other nonprofit programs. 
  • A disaster-ready facility that can prepare meals for emergency personnel, shelters and warming centers, working in partnership with the American Red Cross and our warehouse program. 
  • A training facility for our workforce development training program.

Contained within the FeedMore WNY campus is a convenient Community Center rental space. The private, 2,400 square-foot room is available to rent for corporate meetings, training sessions and approved private parties. It includes:
