The goal of the 'Spread the Love' food drives is to help FeedMore WNY replenish its donations of peanut butter – one of the nonprofit’s most highly requested items by partner agencies and hungry community members. Not only is peanut butter a nutritious form of protein, but it is a staple menu item for FeedMore WNY’s BackPack Program, which provides bags of easy-to-prepare, kid-friendly food to children in need. ~ FeedMore WNY press release

If you can't make it out to either weekend, you can make a monetary donation via FeedMore's website.

Jerry Sheldon, Spread the Love co-chair, said,

“So many of our community members remain in desperate need of food assistance due to the pandemic and, sadly, the increase in need will not go away any time soon,” “FeedMore WNY works tirelessly to ensure our hungry neighbors of all ages receive nutritious food to eat, but it cannot do so without the help of the community.”
