OXFORD ECUMENICAL FOOD SHELF UPDATE

Beginning Thursday March 26th, and every Thursday after, from 4:00 PM until 7:15 PM the Oxford Ecumenical Food Shelf will begin providing PRE-BOXED groceries for Oxford residents.  Please note: No one will be allowed inside the Community Center or the Food Shelf for any reason.

Groceries will be pre-boxed by volunteers and brought up to the front door of the Community Center.  Every family will receive the same amount of groceries including USDA items.

·       BEFORE COMING:

·       Before coming clients should call and leave a message on our phone #508-987-1062 that they will be                coming in for food.  If you are not already a client, let us know and we will return your call to determine              eligibility.

·       Clients should make sure there is room in their trunk or rear hatch for a box of food.

·       UPON ARRIVING:

·       Upon arriving at the Community Center cars should line up in an orderly manner.  Everyone MUST remain         inside their car.

·       No one will be allowed to stand around outside the building.

·       Upon arriving at the Community Center clients should open their trunk / rear hatch and return inside their             car.

·       Clients will be asked their name, address and phone number for our records.  Anyone who is not already             a client will receive a sign in sheet and envelope to fill out and return to us in the mail.

·       Volunteers will place the box of food into the trunk and the client can leave.

·       SAFETY FIRST:

·       We believe this will allow us to serve as many families as possible while keeping everyone as safe as                 possible.
