Irondequoit residents who registered for a food drive picked up their supplies on Friday in the parking lot at Bishop Kearney High School. 

Volunteers loaded up 50-pound boxes of non-perishable food, one after another.

It was a community effort between the town, the Irondequoit Community Cupboard, and Foodlink.

Approximately 15,000 pounds of food was provided to upwards of 300 families.  

The town says this food drive will be the first of many as the goal is to make sure no one in the community is turned away.  

"Our community is amazing. If you were to come to my food panty right now you'd see about 85 percent of what we get comes from the community the donations. They've constantly been receiving text messages during this saying we will do whatever we can. Can you use money? Can you use food? So we've been great, we haven't had to turn anybody away yet," said Debbie Evans of the Irondequoit Community Cupboard.

The organization says its Facebook page will provide updates on how people in Irondequoit can register for the next food drive as well as how to donate items.
