Friends Food Pantry

The primary program at Other Options is the Friends Food Pantry which provides nutrient dense food, nutrition formula, and toiletries to over 1,064 adults and children able to shop weekly. It is estimated that Other Options provides 21 meals(7 breakfast, 7 lunch, 7 dinners) per client number. These men, women, and children are living below the poverty level. At least one member of the family lives with HIV or AIDS. The Food pantry shoppers are pre-qualified by other agencies in the HIV and AIDS fields. The majority of our food is purchased with grant funds at a bulk rate from the Oklahoma Regional Food Bank. Other Options also relies on businesses, churches, and private individuals to donate additional food items that we are not able to obtain from the Food Bank. Funding requirements are extensive in order for Other Options to be able to provide such a needed and critical service to the aforementioned target population. In sum, the cost of operating the Friends Food Pantry is approximately $5,500 a month.

 

The HOPWA Program

The HOPWA Program was established by HUD to address the specific needs of persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families and provide grants to local communities, States, and nonprofit organizations for projects that benefit low income persons medically diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and their families.

Home Delivery Program

Other Options provides home deliveries to those individuals unable to shop at the Friends Food Pantry because their illness keeps them home-bound or bed-fast. Without the ability to provide home deliveries and transportation to the Friends Food Pantry, many of these adults and children would go without proper food supplements.
