The First Niagara Foundation has announced grant funding for Community Missions of Niagara Frontier Inc. to provide food for local families in need through the community soup kitchen.
The First Niagara Foundation is providing $1,000 for the soup kitchen program to help Community Missions work toward the goal of creating a healthy, hunger-free community.

"We are proud to support the Community Missions efforts to help all local families have access to nutritious food and end hunger in our community."
