“Americans Feeding Americans” will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Wednesday on Busti Avenue between Hudson and Maryland streets.
Volunteers from Buffalo Dream Center and other local organizations and churches will be on hand to help feed 800 families.
Each family will receive about 60 pounds of food.
Along with Dream Center representatives, about 200 people are expected to help distribute food to the families, including volunteers from the Belle Center, PepsiCo, Lays, Tops Friendly Markets, Larkin Center of Commerce and AmeriCorps.
Families that receive the food have been pre-registered by door-to-door visits and through programs at other organizations throughout the community that have a direct relationship with families in need.
