Reaching Our City Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is one of the largest pantries of its kind in Oklahoma City. Over 60,000 pounds of food are distributed each month through the distinctive red awning at the entrance to the Pantry. The largely volunteer staff welcomes families from ten Oklahoma City zip codes, and is open to the public Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, at the main campus, and on Wednesdays and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month in the Tulakes neighborhood.

Volunteer counselors meet with each family and individual to assist, discover and support. A grocery basket is then prepared and individualized for each person/family.

The Vine
Each Friday the gym is recreated with tables, 80+ chairs, flower arrangements, food, laughter, tears, testimonies, support, education, spiritual challenges and many, many prizes. By 11:30, the gym has transformed into a fashionable restaurant. By noon, everyone has enjoyed a luncheon donated and prepared by one of many sponsoring churches, or by a supporting agency, or by our dedicated staff and volunteers. By 12:30 the ladies have laughed and cried, sharing their heartaches and their joys with each other. And by 1:00, each has been challenged by warm, encouraging, and heartfelt presentations to press on towards a better life.

Started as a women's support group, the Vine has become the center of activity and the start of something new for hundreds of women.

Day and Hours:
Fridays 11:30 am to 1 pm
Holiday weekends there will be no Vine. Please call 405.440.9994 to see if we will be having Vine.

The Resale Shop
ROC Resale, located at NW 12th and Rockwell, provides affordable clothing, furniture and housewares to our friends and neighbors. The store is an extension of the mission of Reaching Our City. The people of Bethany and Northwest Oklahoma City have established the ROC Resale Shop as a place to share: to share an unused bedroom set with a family that sleeps on the floor; to share one of several coats in the closet with someone who has no coat for the winter; to share a set of family dishes with a family whose cupboard is empty. Generous people sharing - deserving people receiving.

Days and Hours:
Monday - Friday 9 am to 5 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 3 pm.
Donations accepted during Store Hours. 

ROC After-School Tutoring
ROC partners with Western Heights Public Schools to offer after-school tutoring to second and third graders of Greenvale Elementary School and Council Grove Elementary School.  The Tutoring program is designed to assist students in achieving reading and math benchmarks.

​REACH Summer Camp
Each summer, ROC offers a seven-week camp called REACH (ROC’s Education & Achievement Creating Hope) to at-risk children living in and around the N.W. 10th Street corridor of Oklahoma City. The goal of this summer camp is to help
these kids grow emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically. This includes education, games, crafts, food and field trips.
