South Buffalo Community Table

South Buffalo Community Table For over 30 years, the South Buffalo Community Table has been serving meals and fellowship to the hungry and less fortunate members of our community.

Located at the side entrance of Good Shepherd Community of Faith Church, the South Buffalo Community Table provides over 17,000 hot meals a year for those in our community who need it most. We serve Mondays thru Thursdays from 4 - 5 pm. One meal is provided each of those days. Meals are on a take out basis. Masks and social distancing is required. Donations are accepted Monday thru Thursday from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm.

We are so thankful to our dedicated Councilman Chris for his continued support of the Table. Our amazing volunteers and Executive Manager Mark serve 4 nights a week from 4 pm to 5 pm for anyone who needs a meal.

Like so many other businesses and organizations, the South Buffalo Community Table has had to make changes and adapt in order to stay operational during COVID. These changes created new expenses, specifically the need to purchase large quantities of takeout containers. I recently allocated nearly $7,000 to help with these additional costs.

Thank you to Executive Director Mark Robinson, the Board and especially all of the tremendously dedicated and selfless volunteers who keep the Community Table running. You can support their mission by donating directly through PayPal https://www.paypal.com/fundraiser/charity/1565831?fbclid=IwAR2g8F-xIL8mRMsS3OAItE3JR9L6R5AEk5cTJtizZr7ftEVHScOMwje_67I

Hard to believe - we need Jello! We need 6 of one kind per donation. Our guests love Sister Kristen's Jello salad!
We will be closed for Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 7. We will also be closed Wednesday, Nov. 22 so that we can cook a delicious feast for Thanksgiving on the 23rd.
It is very inconvenient that my girlfriend and I walked nearly two and a half miles to find out that you guys were closed when your page said that you were open, and then had to walk nearly two and a half miles back home, mind you, it's not exactly cool outside. The least you guys could have done was put something on your page or the door that indicated that you're not open today. That is very frustrating. Imagine if you guys had to deal with that. How would that make you feel?
