The O.A.S.I.S. Children’s Summer Food Program is aimed at supplementing school-age children’s food resources throughout the summer when free and reduced price meals are not available at schools. Each family with school-aged children visiting the pantry during June, July, and August will receive an additional food package that includes cereal, apple juice, bologna, hot dogs, cheese, granola bars, peanut butter, and mac and cheese. Costs for this program run about $15 per child and we estimate more than 2000 children will benefit from this program.
With those costs in mind, the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry feels very blessed to receive a $5000 grant towards our 2018 Children’s Summer Food Program from the Vatterott Family Youth Foundation. Not only did the Youth Foundation provide a $5000 grant they also came to the pantry to volunteer their time to pack the summer food bags and help distribute food. Receiving this grant is a great help in reaching our goal of providing needed food resources to low-income families and their school-aged children this summer. We are sending a big THANKS to the Vatterott Family Youth Foundation for their generous backing of our 2018 Children’s Summer Food Program.
Thank you for your continued support,
O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry Board Members
