Did you know that Hearts for the Homeless was featured recently on WDCX Radio? Our own Nick Calandra sat down with Neil Boron, the host of NBL, and they were able to talk about everything from Hearts in the early days to what the ministry is doing 30 years later, and Nick’s walk with God. Check out the audio below to hear more!

Mobile Soup Kitchen
One component the story touched on was our Mobile Soup Kitchen in Buffalo NY. As a cornerstone operation of our organization, the mobile soup kitchen feeds about 80 people a night in Buffalo. This is extremely beneficial in helping people get through hard times, especially during colder months here in Buffalo. With the same idea in mind, we know how much it can mean to people that are struggling to get by, or living on the street, to just get a helping hand, a warm meal. Something so simple to many of us is a matter of survival to these people, and that meal can make a difference in changing that person’s life.
A New Food Pantry in Buffalo
Hearts Harvest Food Pantry opened in January of 2020 and has seen over a 300% increase in need. Neil and Nick talked about how Hearts is using the Ministry Center to host the pantry while construction of the new food pantry building is still underway. Nick was moved by God to open the food pantry ahead of schedule as he heard about another food pantry in 14207 closing; about 8 weeks later the pandemic started to unfold. We give God the glory for using the ministry in this way.
