Food Pantry

Food shouldn’t have to be a choice!

The Oaks Food Pantries, located in Mt. Holly and Berlin, provide the people we serve and community members in need with basic food, clothing and household provisions.

Over 90% of the individuals and families in Oaks programs live at or below the poverty level. They often face the harsh dilemma of spending their meager financial resources to purchase the medications which keep them mentally stable or to purchase food.

Our goal is to make sure food doesn’t have to be a choice! Thanks to the generosity of community donors, we offer food assistance to over 800 families a month. As the need continues to increase, we need your help to keep our shelves stocked.
