Fairgoers Do It Again…

…and donated more than 42,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank of WNY. Food along with cash donations will serve the Food Bank in providing more than 66,000 meals to those who need them most. 

Food Bank representatives say that Fairgoers donated over 28,000 pounds on Opening Day alone.

Along with the support of our Fairgoers, the Fair and the Food Bank of WNY would like to thank Strates Shows, Kings of Crash, and Johns_K8A0606onville Brats for their generosity in this wonderful project.

The Erie County Fair Food Drive proved to be essential in 2013 for the Food Bank in bridging the gap between the summer and holiday months, when donations are generally low. Last year’s donations were being used well into November and the Fair is excited to provide assistance to the Food Bank again this year.

The Fair is honored to help the community that has welcomed and grown with us for the past 175 years by giving back in this small but important way. However, it could not be done without the kindness and support of the Fairgoers who came out with bags of food in

their arms to help those in need within our community. Thank you to all who made this year’s Food Bank another great success.
