ADAMS FOOD $EN$E is a program of the Food Bank of Central New York and the Rohde Center. ADAMS FOOD $EN$E offers everyone the opportunity to stretch their food budget dollars by purchasing delicious food at a discount.

Everyone is eligible to purchase food from ADAMS FOOD $EN$E, including senior citizens, college students, singles, disabled, shut-ins, and working and military families. There are NO income requirements! If you eat, you qualify! FOOD $EN$E is a food co-op for everyone.


Please note the following changes to this month’s Food $en$e package.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic which is causing substantial supply chain issues, a few items in the F$ package were available in lower quantities than what was originally ordered from the supplier. As noted each month, product is always subject to availability.

As such, the turkey pan roast, mashed potatoes, canned sweet potatoes and pie shells in the package that were advertised may not be available for all participants. Any time a substitution is required, our goal is to ensure that a comparable alternative is provided.

If affected, the customer may receive a whole five-pound chicken, fresh potatoes and a whole apple pie.
