The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army has three pantries in Buffalo, and one each in Tonawanda, Niagara Falls and Lockport. Right now, they’re feeding almost four times as many people in the region as they normally do, especially on Buffalo’s west side.
Their Homeless Family Shelter remains open during the pandemic and helps people find permanent housing.
