Victor-Farmington Food Cupboard Updates

Last year the VFFC was proud to provide 600 Thanksgiving Baskets through the support of the local Victor, Farmington and Canandaigua Communities. The past two years have brought on new challenges and obstacles for every one of us. Please read more of this letter from the food cupboard about changes this year and how you can help here!

The Victor-Farmington Food Cupboard is also in need of volunteers! These positions and their required skills can be found here.

Thank you for your continued generosity and support!

It will be a day of games, swimming, arts & crafts music, and we will be providing good food at Onanda Park in Canandaigua on Tuesday, July 6th. The joy volunteers get from seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter of approximately 100 children experiencing fresh air, sunshine and freedom to play outdoors without fear is amazing.

Meal-kit Donations and Pop-up Food Drives

Victor-Farmington Food Cupboard News!

The Victor Farmington Food Cupboard finally found a larger space to call home! We will continue our drive thru operations on Sundays and Wednesdays through August and will be serving people out of our current location until July 15th. After July 15th we will be located in a building on Anthony Drive that we will share with Mozzeroni’s Pizza.

We are deeply grateful for ongoing partnerships with the Davis Family(Alex P Davis Memorial), the Cobblestone Guild, the Artchetko Family (Otto Tomotto’s), the American Legion, Farmington/Victor Kiwanis Club, Victor Farmington Rotary, the Victor Central School District, Frank DeFelice and the town and village Chambers and Local Development teams of both Victor and Farmington. We will be posting shout outs to other partners who have continued to support us through this pandemic despite canceled fundraisers and stressful changes in operations.

We are most grateful for the Victor Farmington Community all the time, but particularly right now. It has been no small feat to continue feeding an increased number of folks who suddenly found themselves without incomes. Thank you for your checks, your notes and your food donations at our popup food drives! We continue to need this support and could not have continued without all that kindness. Words are not enough to express the gratitude.

In August, we will host a drive thru “housewarming party” so that you can see where we are and we can thank you in person. Please watch this page for more details!!

On Tuesdays this summer, the Food Cupboard van will be in back of the First Presbyterian Church in Victor from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm to accept any donations of fresh produce (are you overwhelmed with zucchini yet?) as well as any unexpired canned or boxed food.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!😊😊😊😊😊😊
