Strengthen our community

September is Hunger Action month. Across America, 48 million people are affected by food insecurity–15 million of whom are children. There are many neighbors in our own community who are struggling to put food on the table. We can all do our part to help solve this problem. Please consider partnering with the Corning Community Food Pantry through a generous donation. Check out our website to learn about more ways you can make a difference.

Thanksgiving Baskets

We know that the holidays can be challenging for those in need. Qualified clients are eligible to receive a turkey and trimmings so they can prepare a delicious, nourishing Thanksgiving dinner. We will start taking applications at the pantry on Wednesday, October 5th.

Eliminating hunger in our area.

Each year, we distribute about 160 tons of food to thousands of people in need. But visitors receive more than just groceries. The Corning Community Food Pantry, a member agency of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, offers dignity and respect. It doesn’t matter what brings a person through our doors. It only matters that they leave with the food they need, served with compassion.

Meet Jennifer

I work full time and don’t qualify for food stamps. The pantry helps me to feed my kids. Without the pantry, I don’t know what I would do.

Meet Karen

I am disabled. It is hard for me to live on my limited income. I come to the pantry for help with my food.

Meet Pam

We had a fire and lost everything. The Pantry has helped us make it through this difficult time of rebuilding.
