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 County Salvation Army Corps 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. The Corps operates a Bridging the Gap program, now serving six individuals, that teaches life skills and gives a second chance to young people who have made poor decisions.

The Army will soon be seeking individuals, families, organizations, and other groups to stand with the Christmas kettles. Persons wishing to know more about The Salvation Army or to offer voluntary service are invited to call 315-343-6491 or stop at the office at 73 West Second Street in Oswego, between 10:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.
