What is portion control?
We waste a great deal of food in our country.  In order to reduce costs and eliminate food waste, we offer a choice of plate sizes; small, medium and large.


If I am paying, how much should I pay?

In an effort to reduce cost and eliminate food waste we offer three plate sizes with suggested donation amounts [Small $5.00] [Medium $7.00] and [Large $9.00]. Those who are able to pay for their meal have the option to “pay it forward” by donating an additional amount.  This helps OAC to provide meals for others in our community.


Would others know that I am volunteering for my meal?

No, we treat all with dignity. No one knows who is volunteering for a meal and who is here just to help out. We know times are tough - if you have trouble paying the suggested donation, we encourage you to volunteer and save your money for other necessities.
