The community of Oyster River offers a weekend food program for students, End 68 Hours-Oyster River. This program's purpose is to send home a supply of food every Friday with any child who feels/whose parent(s) feel this would be helpful. This process will be done in a confidential manner. The food products are simply placed in bags on their bus Friday afternoon for take home. Students no transported by bus or who would prefer, may pick their bag up at their respective schools.
You may opt in or opt out of this program at any time. For instance, if there is a loss of income in a home, you may contact one of the people noted below in person, via phone, note or email and the next week your child(ren) will receive a bag of food to take home from the school where they attend. The service will continue each week until you state you no longer wish to receive this support.
If you have questions about the program, please reach out to your school's nurse:
If you feel this would help your family, please fill out this form and have your child bring it to the nurse or counselor listed above. You can fill out one form or send information to one location even if you have children in more than one school. You may also call or email the information.
