"Neighbors Helping Neighbors"

Oxford/Orion FISH provides groceries for our neighbors in need who live in  Oxford,  Lake Orion, Addison and Oakland Townships.  We provide food based on pounds per the size of the family.  This can range anywhere from 60 to 200 pounds once a month.  If you are in need, or know someone in need who lives in one of our neighborhoods, please call our hotline number below to arrange for a client review.

March 2018 Pantry Wish List


Canned tuna

Canned salmon

Canned tomatoes

Cake mix

Rice-A-Roni chicken or beef

Our pantry wish list changes at least monthly, and more frequently as needs arise.

Volunteers Needed

We welcome volunteers who would  be willing
to serve as a pantry or office worker

Currently we are in need of pantry volunteers
who would be willing to work from
1-3 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays
a couple of times a month.

Pantry workers assist in keeping our pantry open with shelves fully stocked for our clients when they arrive to do their monthly shopping. 

We are also looking for office volunteers who would be willing to work one or two times a month helping to schedule appointments and pantry shopping visits for FISH clients.

If you can volunteer for either position, please call

A reminder about expired food

As our pantry workers and volunteers know, we strive to take great care in sorting contributions, making sure that our shelves contain the highest quality goods we can provide, with special emphasis placed on making sure we don't distribute expired food to any of our clients.

Please help us by screening contributions whenever possible and encourage friends and fellow donors to check for expiration dates before making contibutions to the pantry.  We appreciate your help and support very much.
