Feeding the Hungry with Dignity and Respect
The Food Cupboard began as a grassroots effort to share food resources to a few dozen families and individuals in the early 1990’s. Prior to our current location, we held operations in a small house owned by St. Patrick’s Church on High Street in Victor, NY. Volunteers would be throughout the house packing food into bags and handing them out to families. As our number of clients grew to a consistent 50-75 households per month, we began to make the move to a “client choice” process. The number of clients continued to grow and over the years we expanded from serving 125 to more than 600 families per month . This quickly made it clear that a new location would soon be a necessity and the decision was made to move to Commercial Drive in Farmington. In July of 2020, after an exhaustive search for a larger space to meet our growing needs, we moved to 6548 Anthony Drive in Victor, NY. We are happy to be a source of help and we proudly service all of Ontario County. We wouldn’t be where we are without the help of our local friends, businesses, and churches. We welcome questions and conversations about hunger so please give us a call, message us on Facebook or email our director. We typically can give 3-5 days’ worth of food to families who live in Ontario County. In addition, we will feed anyone in emergency food need (out of food) no matter where they live, which has often meant someone residing in a vehicle or outside. Also, be on the look out for our holiday food basket programs for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. If you have an idea for a program we could collaborate on, please ask, we love to brainstorm!
