We have several opportunities coming up that we are looking for individuals to help take charge of and help to organize:
1 – We have been asked to participate with Lord of Life Church in starting a meal program for the Depew community. The plan is to start May 23rd – meals would be prepared by Lord of Life at their facility and served at the Depew Senior Center (where we hold our Monthly Food Truck). They would like us to be involved in helping to make the community aware of this opportunity and possibly helping to serve. They are looking at this becoming a monthly or twice a month program. This is a great opportunity for us to bring the community together and assist other programs in feeding the hungry.
2 – Beginning in June the Depew Concert series starts – there will be six concerts on Thursday night and in the past we have had a tent with information on our program and possibly sell water to raise funds. In addition, we could ask Lord of Life, Project Hope, and others to co sponsor with us so more information gets out about our programs.
3 – In July we once again will have the Vans Warped Tour food drive at Darien Lake – need help with that.
As you can see we have a lot of opportunities coming up, not to mention our Thanksgiving Basket program with The Vine and our annual Christmas Party.
I you are interested in being a part of any of these, please contact us
Qualified clients can visit our location twice per month to obtain supplemental food for their households. Last year we were able to service over 350 households per month with over 60,000 lbs of food.
As we move forward, our goal is to expand our services to further assist our clients not only with food, but with other needed services as they become available.
