The Oxford Food Shelf has been approved to distribute USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) foods.  In addition to the foods already provided by the Food Shelf we now also provide USDA foods to approved families.  The USDA approval process is simple and takes about 5 minutes.  Families do not need to bring any proof of income with them.  To be approved a family is asked if their income level exceeds a federal guideline amount which is based upon the size of the family.   The family answers YES or NO, and it's done.
