Applying for Help

You may apply for and get immediate food assistance on site at either food pantry during normal operating hours.


Catholic Charities provides the largest single independent pantry in Broome County and serves approximately 4000 people per month. In addition, Catholic Charities works with five parishes in Western Broome to serve an additional 500 people per month. About 45% of those served are children.

Thanks to the generosity of people in Greater Binghamton and their pledges to Harvest for Hunger, the hungry will be fed. We need your help to continue this important mission.

March and April are special months for our pantries, when Catholic Charities conducts an annual food drive.
Donations are also accepted on an ongoing basis.

For more information regarding corporate/community food drive donations, non-food donations, monetary and in-kind contributions, please contact Sabrina Henriques, Director of Development and Communications, at 607-729-9166.

For more information regarding emergency services and pantry operations, please contact Mary Whitcombe, Manager of Emergency Services, at 584-7800.
