About Oshkosh Area Community Pantry

Location:

2551 JACKSON ST, OSHKOSH, WI 54901, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry is to establish a collaborative community food pantry which addresses the food and nutritional needs of our customers, identify and evaluate our customer’s broader needs and provide access to other community resources that foster independence.

Description

The OACP uses and enhances the best practices employed at the former Ecumenical Pantry and from other successful area pantries like Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay and St. Joseph’s in Menasha.

The OACP has expanded its area of coverage to include not only Oshkosh but southern Winnebago County including Winneconne, Omro and other surrounding townships.

Therefore, the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry, in addition to its primary mission of delivering food to those in need, is also dedicated to providing the community services necessary to combat hunger and the poverty that engenders it.

While the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry collaborates with other pantries to share resources, the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry also has sought memoranda of understanding or covenants with churches, civic organizations and social service organizations.

Our goal is to provide resources, contacts and outreach. To name a few, this includes programs like Food Share, Women, Infant and Children (WlC) program, UW Extension nutrition counseling, food preparation and community gardens, Domestic Violence, Winnebago County Literacy Council, FISC (Financial Information and Services Center) Consumer Counseling, Drug Abuse Correctional Center and new, innovative programs like VITA which is a tax preparation service low income households.
