Food Shuttle of Western New York, Inc. was organized to help alleviate hunger in our community. It is an all-volunteer program that serves as a link between the sources of surplus food and the locations where it is needed most. The Food Shuttle operates 7 days a week, 358 days a year.
There is an on-going need for new sources of donated food and more volunteer drivers. There are also volunteer opportunities for clerical and telephone duties performed from home. Any business with excess food to donate or anyone wishing to volunteer can get additional information by leaving a message on the Food Shuttle Hotline at 716-688-2527.
You too can bring food to the needy citizens who live in Buffalo NY and surrounding areas. Please view Buffalo's WGRZ TV News Video about the Food Shuttle of WNY
