“Unfortunately that means many people are isolated, temporarily out of work, or simply unable to access the basic necessities they need - necessities like food for their families. Through these two mobile food pantries, we’re hoping to bring these resources directly to the communities where they’re needed most. We encourage those who may be struggling during this time to attend these events, and we thank the NAACP Buffalo Branch, FeedMore WNY, Mount Olive Baptist Church, and the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens for partnering with us on these important initiatives. Remember: we’re all in this together.” ~ Senator Tim Kennedy via a press release
