OCTOBER IS FOOD PANTRY MONTH!:

Tuesday, October 5th, begins St. John's October responsibility for the operation of the Oxford Pantry.  We need volunteers with flexibility to work from 8:30 am to 11:30 am on any Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday

If you or someone you know has access to a truck, we can use it!  He or she will pick up a pallet of can goods from Larson's Cash Saver each Tuesday morning (8:15am) and deliver to the Pantry for stocking the shelves. 

Due to COVID-19 protocols, the clients will "drive up" to pick up their items. Those of us who are working the Pantry will be inside the Pantry.  Ole Miss students will help bring the packages to the cars.

Please consider joining us as we provide for those in need in Lafayette County.  Contact John Kohne, 901-849-3151 or Barbara Hoffmann, 662-801-4102 with any questions or to sign up and join us
