BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A nonprofit created last month to help feed Western New York’s front line healthcare workers and support local restaurants has raised over $200,000 in donations so far.

To date, WNY Feeds the Frontline has provided 8,100 meals, coordinating with local restaurants to order meals for local healthcare workers, including 20 percent tip for restaurant staff.
