The Buffalo CAO is offering to deliver free food assistance to residents in need. The Community Action Organization has launched the food assistance program for elderly and disabled people, as well as families who meet income requirements. The service, which doesn't cost anything for eligible people, is designed to get food directly to residents who might not be able to pick up food from pantries on their own,

Our new CARES Emergency Home Delivery program assist low-income seniors ages 65 or older, disabled individuals or individuals/families without secure access to food due to the Covid-19 pandemic with obtaining nutritious food items to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Once a month, our friendly, Emergency & Family Services Team will deliver a bag of groceries to homebound individuals who are unable to visit a food pantry in their local community.
