Food 2 Families returns Dec. 1

Many families rely on FeedMore WNY for support during the holiday season. Your donation of food or funds during Food 2 Families can have a positive impact on families in need!

make a difference this holiday season

Virtual “Little Brown Bags of Hope” are now available and will continue throughout the holiday season at all Tops Friendly Markets in our service area. By making a $5, $10 or $20 donation at the register, food will be donated directly to our program.

Help us provide assistance to families, children, individuals and older adults in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara counties by contributing at your local Tops Markets.
