  • The IFC is an umbrella agency for more than 70 food pantries and meal sites throughout Onondaga County. 
  • The IFC assists each of these programs ith donations on food, money and program support. 
  • The IFC connects people in need of food assistance with appropriate resources.  

Formed in 1982, the IFC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit gency that relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations who care for the most vulnerable members of our society. 

With the help of private and faith-based affiliates, we collect and distribute thousands of pounds of donated food each year to our affiliated emergency food programs and pantries, free of charge.  

People say, what is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words, and deeds are like that
