Food Pantry/Emergency Services
With two locations in Northern Oklahoma, the Opportunities, Inc. Emergency Food Pantries operate on donations given from community sources and help during times of crisis or emergency.
This service is provided by a cooperative effort from community churches, the Department of Human Services (DHS), community donations, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, and Opportunities, Inc.
Currently our food pantries are located in:
- Clinton Oklahoma
- Watonga Oklahoma
Our food pantries are always accepting donations, and hold annual food drives in order to keep their shelves stocked and ready for the public.
