Daily Bread Food Truck is Buffalo’s first and only not-for-profit food share truck. Our philosophy is based on the “get one, give one” principle: when you purchase certain items from our menu, the money will help us provide a meal to hungry families in our community.
During our first full year of operation, we delivered 777 meals to families in need. We’re looking forward to an even bigger year in 2018!
Currently, our mission covers families in the Windermere Elementary School area within the Amherst Central School District, a neighborhood near where we are based. Roughly 60% of the students’ families at Windermere live below the poverty line and over 40% receive reduced-cost or free meals for kids during the weekdays. Daily Bread provides meals – from late fall through late spring – for those families on weekends. The more food purchased from the truck, the more will be given away!
Daily Bread is a completely non-profit truck. 100% of the truck’s overhead costs have been provided by generous donations that allow us to take every dollar beyond supplies and staff costs and put it toward food and hot meals for the communities of Eggertsville and Buffalo.
