Become a Beneficiary

You do NOT have to be a 501(c)(3) organization.  We do require that you provide the name of your organization and how many people you will be providing food for.  We work with many organizations of varying sizes.  Together, we can create a share for you that can accommodate your needs.  Contact us to get started!


How to Begin Receiving Food

We distribute food to smaller front line agencies who can direct it to those experiencing food insecurity.  Flower City Pickers serves between 20-25 different organizations each week and we still have hundreds of pounds of food left over to give away.  

Because we are primarily a volunteer group and are dependent on our volunteers, it would be best if your organization could find a volunteer of their own to come and pick-up donated food from our location on Saturdays at 3:30 PM. However, we can also drop-off food donations to you if you are unable to pick-up. Delivery times are between 3pm-5pm. Times are non-negotiable and dependent on our volunteer base.

To register as a beneficiary please complete our Intake Survey!

Do You Have Critters Who Want Some of Our Bounty?

You MUST RSVP prior to picking up on Saturdays after 3pm.
