Greetings Friends of the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry
The Oshkosh Area Community Pantry’s (OACP) first three years have been times of intense activity and great excitement. With the help of hundreds of dedicated individuals and many community organizations we have been able to make huge progress on our our mission to establish a collaborative community food pantry which addresses the food and nutritional needs of our customers, identifies and evaluates our customers’ broader needs and provides access to other community resources that foster independence.
Our new 10,000 square foot “store” opened in the St. Vincent de Paul Center at 2551 Jackson Drive on April 24th, 2009. Our customers response to the new “shopping” format has been overwhelmingly positive and we have witnessed the true dignity of being able to select grocery items of one’s own choosing.
We rely on volunteers to inspect, sort, shelve and distribute donated food. Become a partner in the fight against hunger.
The volunteer spirit is alive and well in our community. OACP has more than doubled its volunteer ranks with over 250 volunteers offering their time and talents to support our mission. Their acts of faith and kindness are most appreciated and can have a lifetime effect on others. Stepping up and stepping into the lives of others can make a difference that may literally save a life.
