We provide emergency food assistance to people living in northern Otsego County. No referral is required, and no payment of any kind is ever accepted. Five days worth of food, 3 meals a day, is provided for every member of the household. We ask that whenever possible, visits are made no more than once per month. Items received are for personal use only and may not be offered for sale by anyone.

We are closed on major holidays. When Cooperstown Central Schools are closed due to weather, the food pantry is also closed.
