Welcome to the Town of Rochester Food Pantry, located in Accord, NY. Our mission is to provide  food, on an as-requested basis, to hungry families and individuals in the Town of Rochester, which consists of several small hamlets in the County of Ulster, New York State.

The Rochester Food Pantry is a non-profit organization run entirely by about 40 dedicated volunteers. The food pantry has been serving the food needs of those in the Town of Rochester for more than 25 years. During 2019, the Food Pantry provided food sufficient for over 28,500 meals to more than 1900 people belonging to nearly 450  households. Within those households, more than 1/3 are children and 7% are seniors.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic,  the numbers have increased dramatically.  In addition to our regular program, we are providing emergency food packages through the Kerhonkson Federated Church (Tuesdays and Thursdays 4 – 7 PM) and the Ellenville Elks Lodge in Napanoch (Monday and Thursday 1-3 PM)
