Our Mission

Our Mission, simply stated, is to feed people. We provide emergency food assistance to people in need who live or work in Otsego County.​

About Us

Packing Food in Boxes

With a 100% volunteer staff, the OCFP provides food through donations, grants, fundraising, and business partnerships. 

The OCFP is directed by a board represented by local churches and members of the community at large.

Our History

The Otsego County Food Pantry started over 25 years ago in a church basement in response to community need and committed to being a completely volunteer-run effort. From these modest beginnings, the pantry has expanded dramatically and now feeds thousands of families annually providing services Monday through Friday.

“Without all of you, my family would be hungry. Thank you.”


“Very friendly and fast. I was nervous. You made it easy.”


“Awesome service – so much needed in this area.”


“Just moved here from CA not too long ago. You’re so happy and friendly. It made it easy to come here for help.”


“We appreciate you compassion and hospitality.”
