food 2 families

Through the 17th annual Food 2 Families food drive, you can purchase virtual “Little Brown Bags of Hope” from Tops Friendly Markets locations in our service area.

On December 3, 2021, join 2 On Your Side WGRZ-TV, Tops Friendly Markets and Townsquare Media at our outdoor food and fund drive at six Tops locations around Western New York!

Purchase your “Little Brown Bag of Hope” from November 14, 2021 through December 24, 2021!

Virtual “Little Brown Bags of Hope” will be available throughout the holiday season at 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.

Many families rely on FeedMore WNY for support during the holiday season. As our region continues to adapt to the ongoing health crisis, your donation of food or funds can have an even greater impact on those affected.

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.

    • Have you had a positive COVID-19 test in the 14 days before your shift?
