The Food Bank of Central New York is a not-for-profit organization working to eliminate hunger through food distribution, education and advocacy in cooperation with the community.


FBCNY operates two food rescue programs. Our Fresh Foods Program picks up dairy, produce and other perishable foods each weekday from grocery stores, wholesalers, and dairies and delivers the food to one of twenty established food distribution sites; our Second Helpings Program rescues wholesome, unserved, prepared food from restaurants, caterers and cafeterias and makes it available to programs serving meals, such as emergency soup kitchens and shelters. FBCNY is also noted for outreach, education and advocacy through our Food$ense food co-op, Food Stamp Outreach, Community Garden and our 'at risk' youth education CookShop and Kids Cafe initiatives. Funding is public and private.

Reviews for Food Bank Of Central New York

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the honor of working with the Food Bank of CNY since 2011. They have taught me the joy in service and the meaning of community. They are so appreciative of everyone's efforts and they are all truly committed to the fight against hunger. On behalf of the 58 student volunteers of Halloween for Hunger and the Hallowrun for Hunger 5K, it has been our privilege to support the Food Bank throughout our years in high school.
