COMMUNITY PANTRY AND FOOD PARCELS
Oasis Hub South Grimsby works in partnership with We Are One Foundation. The Hub team allows people to do direct referrals to access the a 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.
The Hub makes use of this service to provide emergency food assistance to families at both academies and within our community.
