Food Pantry Project

Did you know?

61% of school-aged kids in Oxford County qualify for the subsidized lunch program (Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book). This is the highest percentage in the state. The Food Pantry Project was launched to try to help fill a pressing need in Oxford County. Here's how it works:

1. We deliver portable shelving units to a business or school.

2. The business or school particpates in a 3-week food drive.

3. At the end of the three weeks, we come pick up the food, weigh it and donate it to a local food pantry.

So far in less than a year of being initiated, we have donated over 500 pounds of food to local pantries in Oxford County. If your business or school is interested in participating in the Food Pantry Project please call our office at (207)743-5833 or email info@uwoxfordcounty.org.
