Fresh Produce Donated to Response to Love Center

A HEALTHY GIFT FOR THOSE IN NEED

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Response to Love Center provides meals to more 500 individuals each and every month through their food pantry. Now, thanks to a generous donation from the AT&T, and some help from the Food Bank of Western New York, those meals will contain a lot more fresh fruits and vegetables.

The cost of food continues to rise, especially for fresh fruits and vegetables. That makes things difficult people to eat a healthy and balanced diet. AT&T and the Food Bank of WNY have partnered to provide a weekly delivery of fresh produce to Response to Love Center. 

Starting on Monday, and throughout the next 17 weeks, the Food Bank of Western New York will deliver 22 cases - which is about 800 pounds - of fresh  produce delivered weekly. Some of the food that this will include is broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, yellow onions, white potatoes, apples and navel oranges. This contribution will result in more than 370 cases or approximately 13,600 pounds of fresh produce for the people in Buffalo. 

Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke was there as the first shipment arrived.
