Welcome to the Good Deed Grocery! We are a FREE Grocery Store & student support center housed inside of the International Preparatory High School, PS 198 in Buffalo, NY.
Our mission is to help fill student needs outside of school, so that they are able to have a Good Day each and every day! Our project started in September of 2021 and continues to grow through community outreach, staff support and identification of student needs.
This year we are focusing our efforts to help students in three specific areas: Warmth, Care and Hunger.

The Good Deed Grocery is a School Based Support Center for students, run by students. Career and Technical Education students have the opportunity to work in the Good Deed Grocery to earn Work Based Learning hours. We also offer community service hours to students who have "late arrival" or "early release"!
The Good Deed Grocery is currently accepting donations of non-perishable food! We are very appreciative of the following items: pasta, dried beans, rice, soup mixes, canned protein and any other shelf-stable products. Our students do take their groceries home on the bus, so the lighter the item is to carry, the better!
Participation in the Good Deed Grocery is anonymous. Students can shop 1 time per week in-store or online for FREE.
We work hard to keep the Good Deed Grocery a private and positive place to get support! We are accepting unopened personal care products for our grocery!
The Good Deed Grocery is stocked, staffed and started by students! A part of the Career & Technical Education program at I-Prep, students learn how to run a business, use social media to advertise, manage others, purchase products--and learn how important it is to give back to their community!
