Food Distribution

About The Food Distribution Center

The Food Distribution Center is concerned with all the issues that Oneida community members with low income face, including limited education, unemployment and low self-esteem. That is why our goals are more than just supplying food. The Food Distribution Center fights hunger by giving our community people a ‘hand up’ and not a ‘hand out’.

We are doing this by:

  • Providing the community nutritional information to help reduce the impacts of health issues and increase or sustaining a quality of life around healthy food consumption.
  • Provide outreach information to assist clients to access other programs that can help meet their needs.
  • Provide free delivery service to elderly, disabled and respond emergency situations when needed.
