Our food pantry is set up like a grocery store, but everything is free. Volunteers help clients pick out food from the shelves; making sure they take the right amount for their family size. If you are friendly and can bag groceries, we want you! We are open three mornings a week- Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You can choose the early shift (8:45-11am) or the late shift (10:30-1pm) and work whatever day(s) of the week is best for you.

Mission Statement

The South Wedge Food Program exists to offer free groceries to people in need in Rochester, NY. We provide food with respect and dignity and help clients find other sources of help in and around the Rochester area.

Description

Since the 1970's the Historic Calvary St Andrews building has hosted a feeding program for those in need. Currently, we feed between 300 and 400 families each month; providing them with healthy food choices. We are set up just like a grocery store to help reduce the stigma of needing to visit a food pantry. Our volunteers are friendly, helpful, and enjoy each other's company. We also have a sewing program that makes reusable shopping bags for our clients.
