The Perinton Food Shelf is an emergency food relief organization that serves the New York communities of Fairport / Perinton (14450 zip code).

The Perinton Food Shelf was organized in early 1980′s by the Perinton Lay Clergy Council, a group of lay representatives from twelve congregations in the Perinton area. Operations began in 1981 out of the First Baptist Church. The food Shelf is now housed in its own facility in the Village of Fairport.

The Perinton Food Shelf originally served the surrounding towns of Pittsford, East Rochester, and Penfield as well as the Fairport/Perinton area. Due to the increased need for emergency food in these areas, other towns now have their own food pantries.

The Food Shelf Board was organized to oversee the operation in 1982. The organization was incorporated in 1984 and is recognized as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
