We are looking for energetic volunteers with a clean driving record to drive the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry truck(s) and pick up food donations from stores, the Oshkosh Farmers Market, and Little Chute Feeding America site. Routes are all located in the Oshkosh and Southern Winnebago County area. They must be able to load and unload the truck, and collect necessary paperwork. They must have a valid driver’s license, pass a background check, and be added to insurance prior to driving. There are no special qualifications needed for driving the small truck. They need to be able to stand, walk, lift, pull, push, and drive. This person should enjoy working with the public as contacts with community members are made at each stop.
About Oshkosh Area Community Pantry
2551 JACKSON ST, OSHKOSH, WI 54901, US
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.
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.
We'll work with your schedule.
