The Brighton Food Cupboard, a program of Jewish Family Services, is committed to the prevention and reduction of hunger and food insecurity for people in four zip codes (14607, 14610, 14618, 14620) spanning Brighton, Henrietta, and the City of Rochester. Each client interacts with our social worker and receives care management services. Weekly food deliveries are made directly to individuals and families, 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, call BFC at (585) 271-5355 to speak with the care manager. A brief assessment is completed over the phone after which you’ll be scheduled to receive a prepacked box of groceries once per month. In addition to the box of groceries, we often include hygiene and household necessities. The Brighton Food Cupboard can accomodate the needs of our Kosher, vegetarian, and gluten free communities so please let us know if you have specific dietary needs. Deliveries are made directly to our clients’ homes on Wednesdays. JFS care managers also offer information and advocacy to help resolve any additional social service needs.
Monday – Friday, 9 am – 12 noon.
