OASIS Food Pantry News for June 2018

Golf Tournament – Prayers for Good Weather

A big thanks goes out to the 2018 Golf Tournament planers for their efforts in organizing the O.A.S.I.S. Annual Golf Tournament, dinner, and silent auction scheduled for Monday, June 4. We’re looking forward to a great turnout, a successful fund raising campaign, and a beautiful day.

The O.A.S.I.S. Children’s Summer Food Program

Long, lazy summer days is how many people think of summer vacation, but low-income families with school-aged children wonder how they will keep their pantries filled during summer months. 2018 will be the fifth year O.A.S.I.S. adds the Children’s Summer Food Program to the existing pantry food program. Families with children aged 6 to 18 years visiting the pantry during June, July and August receive additional food to help compensate for the meals children miss while on summer break from school.  These families will receive their regular monthly quantity of food with supplementary amounts of:

  • Apple juice
  • Cereal
  • Granola bars
  • Beef Bologna
  • Cheese Mac & Cheese
  • Beef hot-dog
  • Fruit Cups
  • Peanut butter

Our goal is to help disadvantaged children in St. Charles County bridge the summer meal gap — so they are healthy and ready to start the new school year.

Applause, Applause!

Ameren UE Missouri has been an OASIS Food Pantry supporter for many years, and this year our friends at Ameren UE have contributed a $1000 grant to help pay for the additional food costs associated with our children’s summer food program.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Postal Worker’s Food Drive

Thank you to everyone who came out to support this weekend’s Postal Workers food drive.  This years food drive looks to exceed the typical amount of food collected. The food received from the Postal Worker’s drive is important to O.A.S.I.S. as it helps the food pantry get through the summer months when few groups conduct food drives.

The O.A.S.I.S. food pantry is blessed to have so many partners helping us serve those less fortunate in our community.
