Food, Clothing Drive

Friends of Night People is located at 394 Hudson Street, but the reach of our meals extends beyond the four walls of the building. We work with 6 partners in Buffalo – we prepare the meals, and they serve them on our behalf.


Friends of Night People provides free food to those in need. These items are given away daily (when available) from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

Drop Off:  Donations are accepted Monday through Saturday between 10AM and 7PM, and on Sunday between 12 and 7PM.  Please bring donations to the double glass side door on Wadsworth Street.  Please do not leave donations unattended outside the building.  We do not accept household items, children’s toys, or medical equipment.
