Bergholz Volunteer Fire Department Chowder Sale 

Bergholz Fire Department

2470 Niagara Road Niagara Falls NY
(716) 731-4848‎

There is a tradition I remember fondly as a child and it was getting chowder from the Fire Department. Bergholz Volunteer Fire Department Chowder sale is just one of many, but many say it is the best around. Returning to Western New York after 20 years of being gone there are some things that stand the test of time - Chicken Wings, Beef on Weck, Fish Fry on Friday, DiCamillo's Bakery and Chowder!

Niagara County is full of Volunteer Fire and Emergency companies. It is part of the heritage here in Western New York. Ben Franklin is credit with bringing to the public's awareness of the importance of being aware and prepared for fire.  Since this Wheatfield Volunteer Fire Company relies on donations, they have to raise money to supplement their budgets.  One way Bergholze Volunteer Firemen do this is via their Chowder Sales.

Colleen...I was raised in the northeast and lots of clam chowder.  Is that what's cooking at the fire department?

Down here in Virginia we have clam chowder too but lots of corn chowder.  Both are delicious especially on a chilly winter day.
