In an effort to encourage sustained, meaningful and transformational change in East Buffalo, KeyBank, Buffalo GoGreen and the African Heritage Food Co-Op are partnering to bring a bi-weekly farmers market to the city’s Delavan-Grider neighborhood. The market brings fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods with few options and is part of KeyBank’s ongoing response to the mass shooting in Buffalo that took place on May 14th.
“Even before the tragic event that took place on May 14th, this neighborhood lacked resources that many others have,” said Chiwuike Owunwanne, Corporate Responsibility Officer for KeyBank in Buffalo. “We are proud to partner with Buffalo GoGreen, the African Heritage Co-Op and the Delavan-Grider Community Center to bring an exciting, new and needed fresh food option to this community.”
The market, which kicked off on Thursday September 1st, will be held at the Delavan Grider Community Center located at 877 East Delavan Avenue. It will take place from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. on the following days:
In addition to produce vendors, other merchants from around Western New York will take part in the market. Accepted forms of payment are cash, checks, Mastercard, Visa, SNAP, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC and Senior Farmers checks. In addition, those who sign up on site for the Double Up Food Bucks program will receive a $10 food voucher to the market courtesy of KeyBank.
