Food Donation

About The OSFB

Vision Statement:

The Vision of the Ocean Shores Food Bank is that “Everyone has access to sufficient, nutritious food.”

Mission Statement:

Our Mission is:
“So no one in our community goes hungry.”
Where do our donations come from and how are those funds spent?

During our most recent year, 65% of our financial donations came from individuals and families with the balance derived from businesses and community organizations. Out of those donations, we were able to purchase
30 tons of food, as well as pay the rent, utilities, insurance, and other administrative expenses.

Number Served:

The following are some statistics from 2022 to help you understand the scope of
our mission:

  • Households Served: 7,637 Households

  • (Averaging 170 per distribution)

  • Individuals Served: 17,922+ individuals
    (1% infants, 13% children, 33% adults, and some 53% seniors)

  • Emergency Food: Averages 34 households per month

Pets and Books:

We also provide pet food and children’s books.

Knowing how important pets are to our guests, through designated funds we offer dog and cat food to our furry friends.


We strongly believe that literacy is an important key to alleviating poverty and hunger.  Thanks to designated cash donations and many used books, we are able to hand out books to the delight of children, parents, and grandparents.

Our financial statements and IRS 990 are available on request.
