Your Donations Make a Difference
Those struggling with financial difficulties are especially hard hit by the impact of restrictions due to COVID-19. Your generous donations will help us continue to stock our pantry with nutritious foods and personal care items so that we can provide some needed relief.

Give now


Our pantry remains open at this time with the same hours of operation (listed at the bottom of this page). We have taken extra health precautions, including switching to “Drive-Up Service.” Anyone in need of assistance is welcome to come, even if you have never visited our pantry before. No need to call ahead! Please be sure there is room in the trunk/back of your vehicle. Follow the signs in the parking lot and wait in your car. A volunteer will bring a cart of groceries for you to unload and place in your vehicle.

For those dropping off donations, do so during our hours of operation. Knock on the delivery door and leave the items outside. We are especially in need of toilet paper and bars of soap at this time.

Schedule Change
Please note that we will be CLOSED both Friday, April 10th and Saturday, April 11th in observance of the Easter weekend.

Eliminating hunger in our area.

Each year, we distribute about 140 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.


When struggling with hunger due to food insecurity, people can visit us to receive nutritious groceries.

Essential items

The Food Pantry also offers free clothing, personal care items, books, and even special birthday bags for children.


It’s not just what we do. It’s the attitude with which we do it. Respect for all people is the heart of our philosophy.

You make all the difference.

The Food Pantry relies on donations from people like you to keep fighting hunger in the Southern Tier.
We keep costs low by relying on volunteers for all aspects of our work.

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.
