Tri-Community Selected to Participate in Baby Needs Program


The Tri-Community Food Pantry has been selected to participate in the Baby Needs Program administered by the Food Bank of Western New York. This program assists families facing emergencies and/or waiting for W.I.C. benefits in accessing essential baby care items.

There are fewer than 50 agencies that benefit from this program. Tri-Community has been chosen to participate because of its location and the number of infants that it serves. Due to the limited number of participating agencies, clients from outside our normal service area may be referred to our pantry for baby items.

As a Baby Needs Program participant, we are able to order through the Food Bank of Western New York from a limited supply of infant products such as fomula and diapers at no cost to our agency. Since this program is grant funded, there will be a fluctuation in the availability of these items. Because baby products are seldom donated, the Food Bank greatly appreciates assistance with this program. For more information about the program please contact Stephanie Lawson, [email protected].
