About the Homer Food Pantry

The pantry serves the residents of Homer, New York and the surrounding communities of the Homer School District.  The pantry is supported by Homer First United Methodist Church, Homer Congregational Church, and the greater Homer community. 

Monthly Food Distribution

Individuals are welcome to access the pantry once a month to receive a generous distribution of food.  Amounts vary depending on number in household.  Items include hot/cold cereal, canned vegetables and fruits, pasta/pasta sauce, beans, rice, peanut butter, jelly, soups, frozen meats, eggs, cheese, margarine, bread, desserts, and toilet paper.  A different personal care item (such as laundry detergent or shampoo) is distributed each month.  Additional items and fresh produce/dairy as available.


Every Tuesday from 10 am – 12 pm

If the Homer school district closes schools due to inclement weather in winter, the pantry will also be closed that day.
