Welcome to the Penfield Ecumenical Food Shelf!

We are a supplemental food relief organization

serving the 14526 and 14625 zip codes,

in addition to families of children in the Penfield School District.

Our mission is to alleviate food insecurity in the Penfield Community

by providing nutritious food to those

in need in a compassionate, respectful

and non-judgmental manner.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

PEFS is also looking for some new Adopt-A-Shelf participants. The commitment is 3 or 4 months a year and you'd be providing approximately 20 items per month (ie: mustard, jelly, Hamburger Helper). If you know of anyone that is interested, please email Deb Roschetzky at
