The Brighton Food Cupboard, a program of Jewish Family Services, is committed to the prevention and reduction of hunger and food insecurity for individuals and families living in Brighton and surrounding communities. Each client interacts with our social worker and receives case management services. Clients shop for food over the phone and food is delivered to them thereby ensuring dignity and anonymity of our clients and reducing the obstacles associated with transportation and access.
How does the Brighton Food Cupboard work?
To become a client, individuals call BFC at (585) 271-5355 to speak with the case manager. A brief assessment is completed over the phone. The client then has the option to shop over the phone with a community volunteer for requested food or they can opt to receive a prepacked box of groceries. The groceries are delivered to the client’s home by a volunteer. The case manager also offers clients information and advocacy to help resolve any additional social service needs.
In addition to the box of groceries, we include a bag of hydroponic lettuce that is freshly grown at BFC. We also have a sister program, Brighton Your Wardrobe, where you can request clothes that will be included in the delivery.
Monday – Friday, 9 am – 12 noon.
