OUR JULY 24, 2019 REVIEW….

Community youth workers and Mayor Summer Youth students helped us to finish our pantries! We officially have 6 little fee pantries completed! Our next step is to re-install our green roofs and to get them designed by students of the Buffalo Center for Arts & Technology (BCAT)! As always, special thanks to our friends at The Foundry!

Feed Buffalo was awarded $5,000 from the Marguerite Casey Foundation! Special thanks to Rami Nashishibi and the entire organization for seeing and supporting healthy communities. This grant allows us to secure ourselves in our new building for the rest of the year and to get much needed appliances for the pantry! We are so grateful!

Feed Buffalo presented the first Healthy Community Session at the Massachusetts Avenue Project! We featured Vegan Chef, L. Judith Carroll of St. Croix. She cooked plant-based comfort foods and spoke to the community about the benefits of healthy living. Chef Alexa Joan of Buffalo, NY also made delicious vegan cakes and roasted cabbage. The audience was mixed, open and very receptive. Click here for recipes from Chef L. Judith Carroll!

This event was sponsored by buffalo state eop and ashker’s juice bar. Thank you so much for your support!

We made a lot of progress with our Little Free Pantry Project! We worked with Health Sciences Charter School students and community volunteers to finish the structure, doors, and add green roofs with trough-resistant plants! The Foundry has been an awesome collaborator for this project! We are almost finished!

In June, we also added a chalkboard wall to our pantry! Special thanks to Arleym Habeeb of CPR Remodeling Pros for such efficient work!

We are excited to collaborate with The Foundry for our Little Free Pantry project! Megan McNally instructed our volunteers in safety and woodbuilding. We cut out the wood for the base, shelves and roof for 2 little free pantries. In our next session, we will complete one pantry and do some more cutting! Special thanks to Project Mona’s House and Young Women’s Empowerment Academy for sending youth volunteers. Visit our events page to find a session that you can join. We look forward to having you.

Thank you M & T bank for making this possible.
