Food Purchases and Expenses:
Meals: (USDA definition of a meal is that it must contain 4 of the 5 food groups)
The Rohde Center Food Pantry has been providing emergency food to residents of southern Jefferson County since 1977. We are 100% reliant on grants and donations of time, money and product. Over 75% of our income comes from private individuals & organizations. The remaining 25% comes as grants from The Food Bank of CNY. Every donation is an important part of The Power of A Dollar. As a member program of the Food Bank of CNY we can purchase over $10.50 worth of food for every $1 donated; sometimes even more. This is a powerful return on investment and the reason 89.5% of our food purchases come from this valuable resource. 4.8% of our food is purchased at local groceries and 5.7% is donated through food drives and individual food donations.
We are run by an all-volunteer board of directors and one part-time, paid Food Pantry Manager and a dedicated group of volunteers.
We are open 4 days a week, including Tuesdays until 7 PM, to allow working families an opportunity to access the pantry on the way home from work. Phone numbers are posted for emergency assistance when we are not open.
