We look forward to serving you again just as soon as we can. For now, here are some links to food resources in Southern Oregon:

Keep in mind that during this time, many services such as SNAP have changing eligibility requirements. You can find more information about some of those resources here:

Ossie's Cupboard is a free food pantry and household supply service piloting fall 2019 at the Riverside Campus in Medford. Ossie's Cupboard partners with the Oregon Food Bank, the RCC Foundation, and community partners to provide healthy food, hygiene products, and household items to students and employees at RCC. At Ossie's Cupboard, we realize the financial struggle that higher education can create, and feel no one should ever have to make the choice between their basic needs and an education.

Eligibility 

Open to members of the RCC community with an RCC ID card
(students with a current term ID card and staff/faculty).

Location

Riverside Campus, G-Building Lobby, Medford 


How to Support Ossie's Cupboard

Most needed items:

  • Dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt)
  • Dairy-alternatives such as soy milk, almond milk, etc.
  • Gluten-free items
  • Bread

Things to keep in mind – we welcome almost all donations. We cannot accept opened items, expired items, items that have been repackaged, and items that are generally unwieldy (25 pound bags of rice or dried beans are just a challenge to manage).

Immediate volunteer opportunities:

  • Couponer(s) extraordinaire - clip coupons and provide a shopping plan for specific household and personal items this could be a one-time or ongoing commitment.
  • Information sharer – make sure that your co-workers and students know about this free food source!

If you are interested in donating to help support Ossie's Cupboard, or have any questions about the services provided, please email us at ossiescupboard@roguecc.edu or call 541-245-7736.
