The Genesis Center of WNY's Mission is to love our neighbors.
We do so by providing groceries weekly from our Food Pantry & by preparing and serving hot, nutritious meals 4 days a week from our Community Soup Kitchen to those in need.
Food Pantry - Eligible clients who qualify from the 14210 zip code may get groceries from us bi-weekly. FeedMore of WNY, a number of different supermarkets, restaurants, specialty food shops, and local farmers (in-season) provide food to our pantry weekly. If your last name begins with A-K, you may get groceries on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. If your last name begins with L-Z, you may get groceries on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. We are open Thursdays for registered clients from 10am-1pm & from 4pm-5:30pm. You may come in the morning OR evening for your convenience.
Mobile Food Pantry - We offer a once-a-month Mobile Food Pantry on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 1pm-2pm in the back parking lot for your convenience. (NOT in November/December)
