When you arrive at ICC at your scheduled food pickup time, please drive past our building, turn around and pull up along the edge of ICC.  We will bring your items to your car, instead of you coming inside the building.

Thank you for your cooperation.

The Irondequoit Community Cupboard has always been about “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” The corona virus is here and We really dont know much about it except that the elderly population and those with compromised immune systems are most susceptible.

If you are an at risk Irondequoit resident who is elderly or has a compromised immune system such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, COPD, and those receiving cancer treatment, I will bring you emergency food. I do not want you to put yourself at a higher risk than necessary.

Please contact me directly at iccdebbieevans@gmail.com if you would like me to do this for you.

"Letter from the President"
(March 2020)

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

ICC has been working tirelessly to be able to meet the needs of our community during this pandemic.

The ICC Board of Directors and myself remain in continuous contact with one another to make sure we are all on the same page regarding the organizing and coordinating the work and activities of the week.

We have been collaborating with the school districts, the town Supervisor and Foodlink to be able to continue with the food support you have grown used to from us. With this collaboration we were able to do a large box distribution at Bishop Kearney last week. All of us working together allowed this to happen.

Our volunteers have been amazing; working with incoming donations, packing bags, picking up large donations, and helping with the distribution of food and toiletries to the residents of our community. If you are a current volunteer that is scheduled to work at ICC in the next few weeks and for whatever reason, you do not wish to come in, please let me know as soon as possible so that we have enough people to cover a shift.

We have been using precautions since the beginning of this crisis. We are wiping down all hard surfaces, spraying with Lysol, wearing gloves and most importantly distributing on a grab and go method. This means we will be checking you in outdoors, the emergency food will be packed and ready to go, enough for 7 days, and we will put it in your trunk to limit any exposure to either of us.

Here is what you can do right now-
Make sure you are following proper protocols of hand washing.
If you are sick, stay home.
If you or a member of your household has been in contact with someone who may have been a carrier of the corona virus-stay home.
If you dont have to go out, dont.
To “Help us Help others” PLEASE check on your neighbors. If YOU know of someone who cannot or should not get out let us know and we will work with you to make sure they get what they need.

Our donors, who have been providing cash, food and hygiene items have really helped us to be able to be so generous to those coming to us for assistance.

Thank you, Tasteful Connections, Union Tavern, Thai Mii Up, Shamrock Jacks and Two Ton Tonys for thinking of us during this critical time.

Irondequoit is the definition of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”
