'Like’ the Food Bank of WNY

'Like’ the Food Bank of WNY

BUFFALO, NY – The Food Bank of Western New York is asking for help in a different way this winter.

In addition to cash and food donations, the Food Bank is asking that Western New Yorkers ‘like’ them; on Facebook that is.

“We are currently in the middle of a national in-store Walmart food drive,” Jeremy Juhasz, Social Media Coordinator for the Food Bank said. “The folks at Walmart have also set up a separate web site specifically for a complimentary Facebook competition among 100 markets spanning the nation.”

Facebook users choose to “support” a region, and Walmart will distribute $1.5 million to hunger relief organizations in those regions that finish 1-5. The Food Bank of WNY is part of those organizations listed underneath the Buffalo/Niagara Falls umbrella.

Here is all you have to do.
