Brighton Food Cupboard

The Brighton Food Cupboard logo is a green circle with a white pea pod.

Brighton Food Cupboard is a program of Jewish Family Service of Rochester in cooperation with, The Brighton Central School District, Foodlink and other community organizations and volunteers. Food insecurity goes hand in hand with other issues, as many are just a paycheck away from hunger. 

The Brighton Food Cupboard, a program of Jewish Family Services, is committed to the prevention and reduction of food insecurity for people in our community. The Food Cupboard services residents in the 14607, 14610, 14618, and 14620 zip codes, anyone served by another JFS Rochester program, and any Jewish resident in Monroe County who is financially eligible. They provide monthly food deliveries, ensuring the dignity and anonymity of those served and reducing the obstacles associated with transportation and access.
