A Buffalo pastor and his church's mobile food pantry parked outside the Belle Community Center on Maryland Street in Buffalo Friday. It was just the latest stop since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived five weeks ago. It's an ongoing mission to bring food, and a moment of interaction, to many local families in need.
Thanksgiving night, the Rev. Eric Johns and his two sons - Alexander, 16, and Nathaniel, 15, - slept under the viaduct that carries the I-190 over Exchange Street, across from the downtown Amtrak station.
