Kitchen & Food Pantry
Cameron serves a free hot meal to the public five days a week, Monday-Friday from 12 – 1:30pm. In 2020, our Hot Lunch program served nearly 27,000 meals to the community. The meals are filling and nutritious, with fresh fruit, vegetables and dessert items.
In addition to daily meals, we provide our guests with access to other services such as free books, free bread and emergency food, social workers, Food Stamp information, and other community services. People receiving public assistance have the opportunity to work with us, gaining work skills and positive references for job applications through the WEP Program at RochesterWorks.
Meals from the Heart
Groups who volunteer for Meals from the Heart prepare meals in Cameron’s Kitchen and serve lunch to-go! Groups can also choose to donate a sandwich meal kit (bread, deli meat, condiments, cheese, healthy snacks) to drop off any weekday.
Meals from the Heart offer a means for church and community groups to assist in combating hunger in the Rochester area, as well as continue in their own missions through our agency. To sign up please contact Izzy Kimber – Volunteer Program Manager at Izzy.Kimber@cameronministries.org or call (585) 254-2697 ext. 104

Emergency Food Pantry
The Cameron Food Pantry is a vital support to our community. Last year (2020) we served 575 families in our Emergency Food Pantry.
Families are able to come in and receive food to last them for a few days until they could make ends meet. We use a model called Client Choice, which allows neighbors to choose which foods they want to take home for their families.
