Food Bank of WNY Partners with Nickel City Roast Coffee from NOCO Express

Throughout November and December, NOCO Express Stores will donate ten cents from every cup of Nickel City Roast Coffee sold in-store to the Food Bank of Western New York.

The Food Bank of Western New York collects and distributes food to its 400 member agencies in Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, distributing one million pounds of food per month, assisting 100,000 people in need.
