Oasis serves those fighting poverty by meeting numerous basic needs:
- Hot grab-and-go meals Monday - Friday
- Food bags from our pantry
- Diapers/other baby needs
For many of the women and children who come to our doors, Oasis provides the only nutritious and hot meal they receive all day.
From July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020, Oasis served 115,000 meals and distributed
over 10,000 food bags, diapers and baby supplies.
During the holidays, Oasis also hosts special meals and distributes food and gift items donated from private sources. In 2019, over 1,000 Thanksgiving meals were served while over 1,200 turkeys and 350 food bags were distributed. Just before Christmas, over 600 meals were served and over 5,000 toys were distributed by Oasis to our adult education students and the greater community.
As of March 16, 2020, Oasis has been engaged in a massive food distribution effort. Our goal is to provide hot grab-and-goal meals and bags of shelf-stable foods to low-income families impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. We serve meals and distribute food bags every weekday from 11:30 to 1:00 pm.
