For I was Hungry and you fed me…
Matthew 25:35
Welcome to the Perinton Food Shelf, an emergency food relief organization serving the New York State communities of the Village of Fairport and Town of Perinton(14450 zip code).
Get Help

The Perinton Food Shelf is a nonprofit organization staffed entirely by volunteers. Food supplies are donated to the Perinton Food Shelf by collections from local churches, schools, civic organizations and individuals. Also, the Perinton Food Shelf receives monetary donations, which help purchase fresh meat, milk, eggs and margarine for the families in need.

Additionally, local Aldi and Target stores generously donate a signigicant amount of product to the Perinton Food Shelf.


Despite the economic recovery our demands for emergency food supplies continue to increase year over year. We find ourselves from time to time with empty shelves, particularly during the months of May through October. So keep the food donations coming year round for both non-perishable food as well as money to purchase bread, milk, eggs and meat.  For non-perishable food donations, our “Most Needed Items” list is updated every month on the first of the month. Please keep the list in mind as you shop at the grocery store.
