Category:
Food, Agriculture & Nutrition
Population Served:
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General
Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

The mission of the Food Express Program is to supply the less fortunate of Western New York with fresh produce and dairy products donated to the Food Bank. The two-fold purpose is to help insure that those in need are eating a healthy diet and is also a way to distribute close-dated perishable product while while still safe to consume.

Program Long-Term Success:

Since October of 2000 this program has delivered over 9,381,300 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products to approximately 6,500 people

Program Short-Term Success:

During the 12 months of 2008 this program distributed 1,239,268 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables and diary product to approximately 6,500 people .

Program Success Monitored by:

Program success is monitored by internal reports which document the pounds of perishable product distributed and agency program reports documenting the number of individuals who benefited from this food.  We also report and have seen a decrease in the amount of donated perishable product that is disposed of.

Program Success Examples:

The program has delivered over 9,381,300 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products to approximately 6,500 people .  If the direct delivery system of these perishable products did not exist mostly likely 50% - 60% would have been dumped.
