Oak Tree Food Pantry

We are Nazareth's on-campus food pantry, serving students, staff, and faculty.


During this stressful time the Oak Tree Pantry is here to support you. WE WILL BE OPENING THIS SUNDAY 09/13/20! Check below under "hours" to see when you can stop by. 

We also encourage you to utilize the resources and services in the  Pittsford and Greater Rochester community.

During this time, the Pittsford Food Cupboard is welcoming anyone with a Nazareth ID. We recommend calling them before you go to pick up items. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, you can reach us by email

Need resources?

We have a fully stocked pantry complete with all of the staples you need! You can find everything from granola bars, to pasta, to peanut butter, or soap on the pantry shelves. 

Community members can come to the pantry and take any five items at no cost every week

Don't need food? Volunteers can connect community members to outside resources based on a number of needs including:

  • housing 
  • food 
  • community centers 
  • transportation

Location: Colie's Cafe Kitchen, Lower Level of George Hall

The pantry is located just off of Colie's Cafe, and can be accessed from the George Residence Hall Parking Lot (O Lot) or through the main entrance of George Hall - just follow the signs to Colie's Cafe.
