FROM THE DIRECTOR
2013 was a year of transition for the Oxford
Community Choice Pantry as Mike Johnson
stepped down as director and I moved into
the position. While I had served nearly three
years as Assistant—Food Management and
knew much of the workings of pantry operation, there was a real learning curve as I became director and now had to deal with grant
applications, food purchasing and myriad
other details, which included an inexplicably
huge water bill in the summer and frozen
pipes in the winter.
With the help of board members, staff members, volunteers and others, I weathered those
issues and grew to a greater appreciation of
what Mike and others had done not only to
operate the pantry, but to get it opened in the
first place in 2007.
Last year saw the start of a program of one-onone nutrition counseling being made available
to clients to give them ideas on eating healthy,
nutritious meals. We continued partnering
with the Ohio State University Extension
Service and Miami’s Student Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics to offer programming
(and tasty samples) for healthier eating.
Fall of 2013 also saw the pantry’s first-ever student intern come on board for a school year
of service and learning at the pantry. Sherry
Wang had volunteered at the pantry earlier
and when it was time for her senior intern

THE FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS
IN NEED WHO LIVE IN THE
TALAWANDA SCHOOL DISTRICT.
ship, she approached Mike, who set up the
internship before I became director. She was
a social work major and we worked her into
every phase of the operation from stocking
shelves to working with customers to placing
food orders and doing new customer orientations. She was a great asset to the pantry and
got a close-up look at some of the issues that
arise in a service agency such as ours.
The need for our service keeps growing. Last
year saw double-digit new customers coming
in 10 of the 12 months with a high of 27 in
January, 23 in November and 18 new customers in September, October and December. We
served 578 unduplicated households, which
means that many households visited the pantry at least once. Overall, there were a total of
4,033 household visits, permitted every two
weeks, representing a total number of 13,022
people in those 2013 visits.
Food and monetary donations go a long way
to supporting our work of feeding the hungry
and we could not survive without the support we receive from the community, both
permanent residents and student residents. I
like to say each of the four words in our name
is significant—Oxford Community Choice
Pantry—but without the “Community” part of
it, the other three words would not last long.
Thank you for your support!

In 2013, the OCCP made considerable progress working toward our
goal of a sustainable pantry. We continue to save up for the day when
we no longer have access to our current building. Our facility exists
thanks to the continuing generosity of St. Mary Church. Through fiscal
restraint, we have managed to keep our costs down while feeding a
growing number of pantry visitors. Coolers, heating systems, plumbing
and the roof over the pantry—we must be prepared for repairs to any of
these in our aging facility. If the day comes when the OCCP must find a
new building, our current surplus will be quickly depleted. As a Board,
we must plan for that day as well as for any unforeseen events that may
impair our charge to best serve our community.

FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD
Since 2007 when it was founded, the Oxford Community
Choice Pantry has been making great strides in helping our
neighbors who are dealing with food insecurity. Major national
and local changes and transitions this year have made our work
more challenging.
happening in our town. The City of Oxford, the Miami University community, volunteers and students, children, many food
drives, community organizations, and the Oxford Community
Foundation, the Community Garden, and the Farmers’ Market
regularly support the Pantry.
Bob Ratterman, the second director of the OCCP, continues
the legacy of the first director, Mike Johnson, and adds his own
excellent skills. Steve Dana’s term as president of the board
ended but his energy and commitment have been role models for
me. Fortunately, both Mike and Steve continue to donate their
time generously to the Pantry. Operating with three part-time
staff members--Bob Ratterman, Candace Roseman, and Jeremy
Long--, and dedicated volunteers and board members, we have a
great team that works together to achieve our common goals.
I recommend joining us in our efforts because from my own experience, being a volunteer shopping assistant and then a board
member is an experience rewarding beyond measure. Oxford is
a generous community, where people care about each other, and
help one another through hard times. With this annual report
we reflect on what we have accomplished and celebrate the generosity of many donors, some anonymous. Thank you for your past
and continuing support.
As the new president of the board, I am pleased to see these
individual and group efforts strengthened by the synergy that is

OCCP FACTS
•The Oxford Community Choice Pantry opened in July 2007 as a nonprofit community organization serving the Talawanda School District.
The new food pantry for the area combined the resources and expertise
of prior existing food pantries of The Family Resource Center and St.
Mary Church’s St. Vincent de Paul Society. Both organizations used their
staff and volunteers to shift food access to the new pantry that adopted
the choice food pantry model.
•The philosophy of the OCCP is to empower its customers by honoring their dignity in giving them responsibility for their food choices. The
pantry emphasizes the selection of healthy food options while providing
nutritional information.
•The OCCP serves approximately 340 households in the Talawanda
School District. It also provides home delivery of food for homebound
adults and seniors.
•Eligibility for food assistance at the pantry is determined by poverty
income levels established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Customers must provide a photo ID and proof of residency in the Talawanda School District. Only one member of a household may register for
service at the pantry. A customer’s food allotment is determined by their
household size which they can access every 14 days.
•There are three part time staff that include a director and two assistants
(one for customer service and one to assist with food management). A
ten member Board of Directors provides direction and support for the
operation of the pantry.
•Pantry volunteers are comprised of community residents and Miami
University students. They serve as shopping assistants, receptionists,
food stockers and sorters.
•The OCCP maintains partnerships with the Shared Harvest Foodbank,
the Butler County OSU Extension Office, the Butler Co. FEED Alliance,
Miami University Student Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the
Office of Community Engagement and Service that support the choice
pantry food assistance service delivery model.
•The OCCP receives additional support from local businesses, civic
and faith organizations, the Oxford Community Foundation, and
generous residents.
•2013 Holiday Community Project: OCCP participated in this county
wide project by providing extra holiday food bags to households for
both the Thanksgiving and December Holiday distribution times. For
Thanksgiving, 243 households received holiday food. For the December
holidays, 253 households received holiday foods. In total, 350 people
received food for both holidays.
•2013 saw double-digit new customers coming in 10 of the 12 months
with a high of 27 in January, 23 in November and 18 new customers
in September, October and December. We served 578 unduplicated
households, which means that many households visited the pantry at
least once. Overall, there were a total of 4,033 household visits, permitted every two weeks, representing a total number of 13,022 people in
those 2013 visits.
