Donate Food


The Open Door Mission accepts almost all food donations with some exceptions.



Food donation drop off hours are Monday thru Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Please keep the following in mind when selecting food items to be donated:

For Health and Safety concerns, food donations should be untouched. (We cannot accept partial leftovers)

Restaurants and catering services should contact food services prior to delivery at (585) 454-6696 ext.114.

  • Perishable items like milk, breakfast cereal, eggs, cheese, and meats are always needed.
  • All canned food items.
  • All prepared boxed food items.
  • Planning your vegetable garden? Remember the Mission when you can’t figure out what to do with those extra tomatoes.

Donation Pick-Up Policy

For many years, we have picked up donations from residential areas. Regrettably, due to rising costs, the Mission can no longer afford to offer this service.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we hope you will appreciate our ongoing effort to exercise “good stewardship” of your gifts to help the needy in our community.

As you know, we do NOT sell your donations in a thrift store. We GIVE all your donations away!
