A Different Kind of Spring Run for 2016

For 2016 the "Spring Run" Will Take the Form of

Be a Food Bank Client for a Morning

 

Date: Saturday May 7, 2016 (10:00 am - 12:00 pm )

Here is something I don't think you have done before. Oasis is inviting everyone to role-play being a client of its food bank. As you walk in you are given a short biography of a typical food bank client and you go through the intake and food distribution process as if you were that person. You will meet with our chef as you try to plan nutritious meals with what you have received. You are also given some play money and try to figure out a monthly budget. Afterwards you go into a fifteen minute counselling session, sit in an addictions group meeting and observe a basic job skills training session. The morning finishes with a discussion of what you have seen including time for questions and answers.
