Children’s Summer Food Program

During the months of June, July and August the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry provides extra food to families with school-aged children who miss their school meals due to the summer break. This year we estimate serving about 600 children at a cost of about $15,000. Monetary donations are welcome as no grants have been received to help with this year’s program expenses. If you would like to donate food items to the program we need: mac and cheese, granola bars, 4-pack fruit cups, and canned meats like beef ravioli.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the food pantry to refill the shelves with canned goods to last through the summer. Please watch for Stamp Out Hunger information from your local mail carrier.
