Mission Statement

The People's Pantry offers 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.


Since the 1970's the The People's Pantry (formerly the South Wedge Food Program) has been providing nutrition to anyone in need. Currently, we feed between 600 and 800 families each month. We provide each family with a variety of food ranging from shelf stable items to fresh produce, and frozen meats to sweets. During the pandemic we adapted a pre-packed bag model, supplemented by fresh, frozen and refrigerated items that our clients can choose from a variety of those available.
