Labatt Feeding Frontline Workers

In partnership with over 25 Buffalo businesses, Labatt has begun a campaign to thank essential workers with 100,000 chicken wings.  The Labatt team began purchasing orders of wings from its bar and restaurant partners two weeks ago to both support the businesses and recognize those on the front lines.  More than 90 chicken wing deliveries have already been donated to hospitals, nursing homes, police and fire stations and more.  The program will continue for the next month and include over 200 bars and restaurants as well as over 200 essential work locations.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has allocated nearly $77 million in a fourth wave of CARES Act funding.  The city of Buffalo received $65,073, while $34,561 went to the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority.
