Special Project Highlights

Woodstock District Development Services Partnership (WDDS)

In response to concerns on a lack of variety of grain products available to support Student Nutrition Program, OSNP Oxford partnered with WDDS in March 2022 to offer healthy mini muffins. WDDS and their clients helped prepare mini muffins in their commercial kitchen using the Banana Muffin Recipe from “Bake It Up” Cookbook (cookbook created by the Nutrition Resource Centre). The team at WDDS prepared 2600 mini banana muffins bi-weekly for nine schools in Woodstock and Ingersoll. 
To increase the availability of the muffins to more schools across Oxford County, the muffins baked by clients at WDDS will be available for schools to order from Produce Express this upcoming school year!

Tillsonburg Lunch Program

Beginning in January 2022, OSNP Oxford partnered with First Baptist Church to launch a lunch program in response to student needs and challenges created COVID-19. First Baptist Church volunteers started out preparing lunch for two Tillsonburg schools, which and has since expanded to include a third school. The church has a team of volunteers aka the ”Lunch Bunch” that prepares 35-40 lunches every school day at their inspected church kitchen. Each lunch typically includes a main dish (wrap, sandwich, salad, etc.), a fruit, a vegetable, and a dessert/snack type food (granola bar, cookie, etc.). 
Ontario Student Nutrition Program – Oxford (through Southwestern Public Health) provided start-up funds for the pilot of this program, and assisted in drafting a letter for the church to solicit donations from community organizations to help with the long-term funding of the project.
