Oasis in A Food Desert
In response to the Mass Shooting at Tops Friendly Markets in Buffalo, NY, the Visiting Nursing Association of Western New York partnered with FellowshipWorld Church to provide non-perishable food items to the residents of the community.
FellowshipWorld is 4 blocks away from where the incident occurred was able to assist families that have been disenfranchised by the closure of the supermarket after an 18 year old, white supremist attacked the store killing 10 and injuring 3. The grocery store is the only one within a 5 mile radius.
Thank you to the employees of VNA of WNY as well as the volunteers who assisted in serving the community.
