Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you distribute expired food?
    • No, we do not distribute expired food. The food we distribute is carefully sorted and reviewed according to specific state-mandated guidelines for animal consumption. We want to make sure that the hungry animals we serve get the very best available in order to nourish and keep them healthy.
  • Where do you get all of the food?
    • The food is collected through generous donations from the general public, businesses and corporate partners. It is only because of this generosity that we are able to feed so many animals.
  • How much goes to feed the animals?
    • 100% of the food and resources that we collect go towards feeding hungry animals. We are a real non-profit in the truest sense of the word!
  • Can I come to you if I need food?
    • No. At this time we do not distribute food to individuals. All distribution of food and resources is handled by our distribution partners. One of our Distribution Partners is St. Matthias Church in East Aurora, New York. Please contact the pantry for eligibility requirements! The Pantry is open for distribution on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month,
