The Buffalo Bills Foundation is partnering with No Kid Hungry this summer to offer grants to schools and community organizations serving rural communities in New York. The Foundation will be providing a $50,000 grant to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign, which combats food insecurity throughout Western New York.

The grant will focus on helping schools and community organizations offer summer meals delivery and pick-up services, reaching more kids across the region. Summer is often the hungriest time of the year for kids, as families struggle to replace the meals served at school. Summer meal programs can help fill the gap, and this year more rural communities have the flexibility to offer summer meals in ways that best fit the needs of their families.

No Kid Hungry is offering grant assistance to launch and improve summer meals programs serving children in rural communities throughout the state.

There are two steps interested schools and community organizations must take to serve non-congregate meals in rural communities as part of their summer feeding program.

  1. Interested schools and community organizations must apply to the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to become a Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
  1. New sponsors to the NYSED must apply by May 1 and previous sponsors must apply by June 1.
  1. Participants must also complete a No Kid Hungry New York 2024 Summer Grant Inquiry form in order to be eligible for consideration.
  1. The No Kid Hungry grant form must be submitted by April 10.

The No Kid Hungry team will review each submission before inviting those aligned with their focus areas to complete a full application. Full applications are due on April 26.
