BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — There will be an NFTA bus going around collecting food for those in need this week.
The NFTA is partnering with the Food Bank of WNY, Upstate Farms and the Erie County Fair for this year’s “Givn’ and Grrovn” outreach program.
The goal of the program is to collect as many canned foods and non-perishables as possible.
“Hunger unfortunately remains a serious problem throughout Western New York, affecting not just our inner cities but our rural and suburban communities as well,” Marylou Borowiak, President & CEO for the Food Bank of WNY, said. “We are grateful to our friends at the NFTA, the Erie County Fair and Upstate Farms for holding this food drive to help the Food Bank of WNY provide nutritious food to our neighbors in need.”
Donors who are 18 years old or older will be eligible to win a year-long supply of milk from Upstate Farms.
