Summer Donations Needed at Tiger's Den Food Pantry

Donations to the Tiger's Den Food Pantry are especially needed during summer months.


The Amherst Central School District, in partnership with St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Eggertsville and the WNY Food Pantry, offers a collaborative food pantry to families who qualify in the 14226 and 14221 zip codes regardless if they have children attending the school district. Based at St. Paul's Church Lutheran Church at 4007 Main Street, the Tiger's Den Food Pantry allows families to enroll in the pantry program and choose boxed, canned and perishable food items once a month. How did the school district get involved in this partnership?
