“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink… or needing clothes and clothe you? The king will reply. ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these people of mine, you did it for me'”

If you want to help we are always seeking volunteers. Volunteers sort, distribute and deliver food.
Our Goals include building partnerships in our community to help in the fight against hunger; provide a training site for youth, women and men to regain skills and experience that help them compete in the marketplace for jobs, explore possible business venues to help the ROC become more self sustaining; and continue reaching out to non-English speaking residents in our community that may not be aware of the ROC services and resources.
Our Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers, churches, foundations, trusts, The Josephine County Food Bank, UCAN, the Gospel Rescue Mission and other fine companies and citizens of our community for all your support. You are the backbone of our service organization and we could not do this without you!
