Other Services

In addition to our lunch program, we provide a variety of other services to meet the needs of the community

(for more information about any of our programs or to donate or volunteer, please call us at 585-235-6511 or email info@stpeterskitchen.org)

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry program is currently open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-11:00 AM. We provide about five (5) days of food per household, one-time per month. Zip codes served: 14604, 06, 08, 11, 14, and 19.  If it is your first time, please bring identification for household member and proof of address.

We recommend calling us (235-6511) to make an appointment but no appointment is necessary.

Phone, Fax and Copy Services

St. Peter’s provides these business services for the community as many do not have access to these basic services. This allows our community to make doctors appointments, contact Social Security or Social Services, secure housing and jobs, and help in their daily needs.

Neighbors’ Table

The Neighbors table is a special spot in our dining room where we place bread, dairy products, and fresh vegetables and any other donated food items we cannot use in our lunch service or food pantry. We endeavor to reduce food waste and ensuremake sure every donation is utilized.

School Supply Drive

Each August, we provide backpacks and school supplies for school-aged children in the neighborhood.

Holiday Meals

Every year we hold special holiday meals for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other holidays.  Our holiday meals are a very special time for guests and volunteers alike! On Christmas and Thanksgiving we prepare and serve a sit-down dinner. Up to 40 volunteers spend their holiday with us serving the community. If the holiday falls on a weekend, we celebrate the Friday before.

Holiday Gift Baskets

We distribute Thanksgiving Food Baskets the Friday before Thanksgiving. NOTE: we are no longer signing up households for 2023 Thanksgiving baskets.

We do a Children’s’ Toy Store in mid December for kids ages 0-12 years old. We will be doing sign-ups for the Toy Store November 13-17 (Monday-Friday) during the lunch hour, 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

The Toy Store serves zip codes 14604, 06, 08, 11, 14, and 19. Please bring identification for all children in household and proof of address such as a piece of mail.

St. Peter’s does not do Christmas food baskets; please call SWEM at 585-503-8529 for information about their holiday food program.

Birthday Cake and Gift

Community members are honored on their birthday with a small cake and a gift.

Emergency Financial Assistance

Unfortunately, our Financial Assistance program does not have funds available at this time.

When funds are available, St. Peter’s provides emergency financial assistance to help with back rent, security deposits, utility bills, prescriptions, and transportation.
