Oswego’s Blessings in a Backpack program will hold a drive-through chicken barbecue for local families in need. Volunteers will cook 400 barbecued chicken meals and pack 400 bags with additional food to prepare for later. They’ll offer two hot meals and two bags of additional food per car to those who need it. “So many families have lost their source of income since the pandemic lockdown,” said program coordinator Melissa Russell, “and many were already experiencing food insecurity. Our advisory committee decided our program could do more to help.” And so, they turned their annual barbecue fundraiser into a barbecue giveaway. The Church of the Resurrection is the lead sponsor of the Oswego program. Contact: 315.297.7802.
