Oasis Food Projects
We are very excited to announce that we have teamed up with local charity ‘We are One Foundation’ to be able to deliver some great food projects.
The Friday Sandwich Club
Every Friday in collaboration with the We Are One Foundation, our fantastic volunteers join us to prepare hundreds of sandwiches to be given in food parcels to those who need support in Grimsby.
We meet at Oasis Hub South Grimsby about 10.30am every Friday and prepare sandwiches until 3pm. We do not under any circumstance expect you to be there every week or for the full time, please feel free to come and go to suit you and your life; we are just grateful that you are willing to help with this great charity.
If you would like to join, please email Michelle or call 07983 298965 and ask for Michelle for more information. Any little bit of time that you can share helps.
Community Pantry & Food Parcels
Oasis Hub South Grimsby works in partnership with We Are One Foundation. The Hub team allows people to be directly referred to access the food parcel scheme. If a student or family is identified as urgently in need of a food parcel due to difficult circumstances, the Hub is able to access support within 24 hours and have open sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1-3pm were people can access donations of bread, fruit and vegetables from the community fridge.
The Hub makes use of this service to provide emergency food assistance to families at both academies and within our community. The Hub also has a food pantry which allows families to donate items. The food pantry is there for those who are not eligible for the local community shop but are struggling with finances.
