Holiday Distributions

Every holiday season, we hold special themed distributions for our Oberlin residents in addition to our second Saturday monthly distributions.

Thanksgiving Distribution

This is a themed distribution of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, canned corn and green beans, French onion soup and corn bread.

Holiday Distribution 

This distribution includes a ham, winter root vegetables, coffee or tea, cooking oil, specialty baking items such as flour and sugar that we do not have out during the year. And, staff will dress up for you!


These distributions are for Oberlin residents only. You need to sign up in advance and show proof of Oberlin residency, such as a recent phone or utility bill. To be eligible, your income must be 200% of poverty level or less. Please bring photo ID. You may have someone proxy for you if you cannot make it, but you will need to fill out a form.
