We serve Greenwich and Cossayuna directly through our Food Center and Satellite Pantry locations.
We work with 11 local libraries to provide open access fresh produce.
We work to break down individual and systemic barriers to fresh, local food access.
In 2022, we distributed over 1/2 million lbs. of food.
Our pantries offer a safe and welcoming environment for members of our community to access real, wholesome food. We operate on a model of choice where eligible guests "shop" the shelves of our pantries once per week and are empowered to make the food choices that are best for themselves and their families.

Many students rely on free or reduced breakfast and lunch during the school week, leaving students vulnerable to food insecurity on weekends and school vacations. In partnership with Greenwich Central School administration, the Greenwich PTSA and the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, CFC provides weekend meals for over 40 students to ensure that they come back to school fed and ready to learn. Thanks to the support of our community partners and volunteers, in 2019 the program extended its service to run throughout the duration of summer break and all school vacations.
Families living in the Greenwich School District who are interested in enrolling in the Weekend Nutrition Program can contact email@example.com for more information.
Free Food Run
During the summer we offer a market-style fresh food van that travels to multiple locations to bring people fresh and often local produce. This is a great program for individuals who may have a difficult time getting to a grocery store or market due to mobility issues or an inability to drive. Check out this summer's schedule!
Starting in Fall 2022, Farm-2-School facilitates the purchase of New York State food by local school districts. CFC bridges barriers like location, storage limitations, and school size that have prevented schools from being able to purchase these foods in the past. CFC's Farm-2-School program flourished in its first year delivering more the 90,000 pounds and over 60 different types of products to our school partners.
If your school district would like to learn more about becoming involved with this program, contact Josh Stephani at firstname.lastname@example.org
