Mission
To alleviate hunger and provide nutrition information to the families and individuals in need who live in the Talawanda School District.

Eligibility
Eligibility is determined by poverty levels set by the United States Federal Government. The OCCP serves approximately 300 families in the Talawanda School District.

A Matter of Choice

Traditional pantry practices of assembling and distributing boxes of random food to customers leads to food waste and lacks the benefit of increasing empowerment.

A choice pantry honors shoppers' dignity by allowing them to choose their items according to their household size and the federally recommended nutritional requirements. The OCCP also provides customers with nutritional information.

History
Oxford Community Choice Pantry (OCCP) opened in July 2007 as a non-profit community endeavor serving the Talawanda School District by providing free groceries to the economically disadvantaged residents in the area.
It was a collaborative effort between the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Mary Church and the Family Resource Center.
