Buffalo Food Shelf
The Buffalo Food Shelf is a Christian, non-profit, community-based organization supplementing food and hygiene items to those in need within the community of Buffalo, Minnesota. Through ongoing generous donations, we continue to support an ever-growing number of families in need of hunger relief. It is through the city of Buffalo’s generosity and the grace of God that we can continue in our mission to feed the hungry in our community.
Feed My Starving Children
As a Christian non-profit organization, Feed My Starving Children is called to feed God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit.
You will hear us say this again and again: “We want to reach everyone, until ALL are fed.” We truly mean this. This means reaching the hard-to-reach people and places, the “least of these.” They will be found, and they will be fed.
With God’s help we will work together with organizations and ministries across the globe to end hunger.
