June was a busy month for The Pantry

The Pantry Board would like to offer our sincere thanks to all of the community spirited members of the First Presbyterian Church who volunteered to serve 526 households for a total of 1,197 individuals in the month of June.

Many thanks and appreciation to Walmart, Panera Bakery Cafe, Kroger, Bost Farms, Community Garden and Oxford Community Market for their food donations.

We would appreciate donations of fresh vegetables if you have extra this summer. Please call us if you need more information about delivering the donations.

Many thanks to the two Delta State University dietetic interns who volunteered at our Pantry to serve our clients in the months of May and June. They shared healthy cooking ideas with our clients.

Our newest volunteer congregation is Community Church of Oxford. We appreciate their service and they will be managing the Oxford Pantry in the month of July.
