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.

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
