The Cooperstown Food Pantry exists due to the generous support of our community.
Donating money is the most efficient way to help. We can make your dollar go a long way!
We accept contributions of all sizes on an ongoing basis, by mail with a check, and via drop off at the Food Pantry offices.
In order to protect our staff and clients as of March 19, 2020 we are unable to accept donations of food or supplies as it is not possible to sanitize them.
SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: Food drives of any size are always appreciated. Donations may be dropped off at the Food Pantry Monday through Friday between 10am and 4pm or Saturdays from 10am to 12pm. Please call ahead if you have a large donation.
Adopt-a-Program allows donors to give to the Regional Food Bank, but direct their dollars to specific feeding programs. To learn more call 518-786-3691 or go to www.regionalfoodbank.net.
Donations made via this program need to coordinated by phone or email with the Regional Food Bank to ensure your donation is directed to The Cooperstown Food Pantry.

Become a Cooperstown Food Pantry Volunteer
To minimize transmission of COVID-19, we regret that at this time, for your safety, we are not adding any new volunteers. Please check in with us after the crisis is over as we will most probably need more volunteer help at that time.
SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: New volunteers are always needed. If you would like to join us, please contact the food pantry Director. Volunteers are typically scheduled for 2 hour time shifts and are encouraged to spend time shadowing an experienced volunteer until they are comfortable working a regular shift. For additional information, please see our Volunteer page.
