Spire Recovery Solutions, a professional accounts receivable collection agency in Lockport, NY, made a recent donation to FeedMore WNY, a charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in the Western New York area. The organization is the primary nonprofit food provider in the region and includes both Meals on Wheels and Food Pantry services.
“FeedMore WNY is an awesome organization. They’re efficient in what they do and the impact is expansive. They have a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and a great reputation here in our area, so it’s nice knowing that the donation will go to excellent use. The main warehouse is in Buffalo but the services extend here in Niagara County and throughout the Western New York region. Both the Meals on Wheels and the Food Pantry aspects of the organization fill a huge need in the aging community in particular, which of course includes veterans. We always try to make sure we’re considering veterans and our local community at large, so we’re happy to be able to support this worthy organization,” shared Joseph Torriere, President of Spire Recovery Solutions.
FeedMore WNY was created in 2019 when Meals on Wheels for Western New York and the Food Bank of Western New York combined to create a greater impact. The individual organizations had already been feeding their community for a combined total of over 90 years. The Meals on Wheels program delivers meals to homebound seniors. Volunteers take turns delivering meals Monday through Friday to individual homes as well as congregate dining centers. This provides a point of needed social contact for meal recipients as well. FeedMore WNY took this a step further to also include delivery of pet food for companion pets when possible. During the pandemic, in particular, many isolated homebound seniors have relied on their pets as their only source of companionship.
The Food Pantry portion of FeedMore WNY serves a wide swath of community members in need by growing food, collecting food donations, purchasing food with monetary donations, and storing food inventory in dedicated temperature-controlled warehouses. Inventory can be purchased in bulk at highly reduced rates and delivered to organizations such as children and adult daycare centers, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, retirement centers, and more. The Food Pantry is wide-reaching and works to fill food and nutrition gaps for all ages to help end hunger in the community.
