Food Gnomes is a Limited Liability Company [LLC]  setup as a Public Benefits Corporation, operating as a not-for-profit.

(For more information on what that means, please see our operating agreement .)

We ask for donations of in-date, non-perishable, canned and boxed goods, as well as various forms of hygiene products (i.e.-soap, shampoo, feminine hygiene products, shaving razors, toothbrushes, etc.). The easiest way to donate is to purchase food from our Amazon Wishlist, here, or to donate in person.

Those who wish to donate food are welcome to do so by placing food in our donation bin at Pilgrim St. Lukes El Nuevo Camino United Church of Christ at 335 Richmond Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222 on Sundays from 10am to 12pm.

(If donating via this method, please enter quietly, since church services are in session.)

We are always looking for folks who are willing to donate on their own, who are willing to tithe their weekly shopping, or who are willing to run micro-food drives. If this interests you, or if you need to arrange to drop off food at another time, please get in touch with our Donations Coordinator, Justine Miller, at

The food that sits on our shelves sits in escrow, and belongs to our clients. Additionally, any who are hungry may come in and take when church is open and in session, though we much prefer to come to, and serve those who are in need, as part of our mission of Food Justice.
