Why We Serve
The Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry is a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) organization founded by local churches. Its purpose is to serve the needs of our community. Those who have lost a job, are underemployed, disabled, homeless or just have a need, may come to the pantry for food and household supplies.
CLOTHING: all sizes, all ages, including XXL
MONETARY DONATIONS: Every dollar counts.
When you are in need, please come.
The Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry newsletter is a quarterly publication. It aims to keep community members aware of the ongoing BIFP needs, activities, and planned events. If you have an activity, event, or anecdote that you feel should be included in one of the upcoming newsletters please click on the envelope icon in the lower right of this page and send a note to the Pantry Staff.
You can access the October 2019 newsletter here.
