BASIC NEEDS


Oasis currently serves those fighting poverty by meeting numerous basic needs:

  • Daily breakfast and lunch served Monday - Friday
  • Food bags from our pantry
  • Clothing for women and children in need
  • 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.  The Oasis soup kitchen is a reliable, welcoming, and safe place for the women and children we serve.


From July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018, Oasis served 67,000 meals and distributed over 9,000 food bags, diapers & baby supplies, and bags of clothing.


Holidays

During the holidays, Oasis also hosts special meals and distributes food and gift items donated from private sources. In 2018, 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.
