Help us to help your neighbors

Your donations of food, money or time are the fuel that runs the Olean Food Pantry. We have no payroll expenses thanks to our 100% volunteer staff . Your monetary donations help us pay our utilities, office expenses and, most importantly, for food that supplements the food donations we receive from the community. For every dollar you donate, we can buy about seven pounds of food from the Western New York Food Bank. Your contributions feed your neighbors in need with little lost to overhead. Please check our current needs list to see how you can help.
