The Food Sense program is a service of the Food Bank of Central New York. The Oswego County Salvation Army is the official site for the City of Oswego and vicinity. A basic assortment of food items is offered each month, along with several specials.

The Oswego Corps, responding to ever-increasing needs, provides fresh-cooked meals five days each week in both Fulton and Oswego, groceries from its food pantries, winter garments, and many other services to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County. In October, the Corps provided 1,489 soup kitchen meals in Oswego and 926 in Fulton. It provided 90 Oswego households with groceries for 2,268 meals and 122 Fulton households with groceries for 3,006 meals. It also distributed about 800 loaves of bread. Seventeen households purchased low-cost foods through the Food Sense program of the Food Bank of Central New York. The Corps operates a Bridging the Gap program that teaches life skills and gives a second chance to young people that have made poor decisions.

Persons wishing to know more about The Salvation Army or offer voluntary service are invited to call 343-6491, or stop at the office at 73 West Second Street, in Oswego, between 1:00 and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.
