Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside Receives Oceanside Charitable Foundation Grant for Culinary Arts Equipment

Oceanside CA— Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) has received a $5,000 grant from the Oceanside Charitable Foundation to purchase a commercial freezer for their Culinary Arts Teaching Kitchen. The freezer will increase food storage capacity for the Culinary Arts Program, which is especially important as the Club continues to provide an Emergency Food Program for youth.

All BGCO meals are prepared by our accomplished Culinary Arts staff and are fresh, nutritious, and most importantly, delicious! Youth attending summer camp receive a daily lunch and snack. In addition, BGCO offers curbside pickup each weekday through the Emergency Food Program. Each pickup includes a lunch and snack for each child. We are proud to provide our community with this crucial resource during the pandemic, and to provide consistency to youth by providing delicious, healthy meals each weekday. BGCO has provided over 19,000 lunches and snacks during the pandemic.

“We are very thankful for The Oceanside Charitable Foundation’s support. It is critically important that we continue to provide healthy meals to youth during the pandemic. This grant helps ensure that we have the space to store and maintain the bulk food supplies needed to provide this essential program,” said Jodi Diamond, CEO.
