Persons and families in need of emergency food are asked to call 585-683-9674 (24 hours per day). Calls are returned from 9 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday. Those in need of clothing may call 585-397-2192. In response to each request, volunteers verify the need and make arrangements for those in need to receive food and clothing.
Since 1977, when the need for emergency food was first recognized by several churches in Greece, the Food Shelf has outgrown four locations. Now based at 500 Maiden Lane, more than 120 volunteers responded to 5691 individuals (2,174 households) requesting food in the 2021-22 fiscal year. In addition, 641 households received clothing.
SUPPLEMENTAL MONTHLY PROGRAM:
The Food Shelf provides on-going assistance to a small group of recipients with disabilities whose benefits are not adequate to meet their needs. A group of volunteers delivers food to these clients on the third Thursday of each month.
The holiday season can be a time of special need. GEFS&CC matches donors with families in need in Greece and Charlotte.
