Oasis serves those fighting poverty by meeting numerous basic needs:
- Hot grab-and-go and dine-in meals
- Food bags from our food pantry
- Diapers and other baby items
- Personal hygiene items
For many of the women and children who come to our doors, Oasis provides them their only nutritious hot meal for the day.
From July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021, Oasis served 82,564 meals, distributed
over 13,000 food bags, and provided mothers with diapers and baby supplies.
During the holidays, Oasis also hosts special meals and distributes food and gift items donated from private sources. In 2021, 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-go meals and bags of shelf-stable foods to low-income families impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. We serve breakfast and lunch every weekday from 8:00 - 9:00am and 12:00 to 1:00pm.
