40 Oaks 5th birthday bash a huge success!

Thank you to all our wonderful sponsors, donors, ticket buyers and volunteers for making our Street Eats Festival, celebrating 40 Oaks and 5 years, such a huge success!

40 oaks sprout Our new building opened with a grand bash in 2012. The beautiful 5000-square-foot community hub at our custom-built 40 Oaks facility is a thriving meetup space for thousands of community members throughout the year as well as a go-to destination for practical supports and social services – everything from 60,000+ nutrient-dense meals and 30,000 units of clothing distributed each year to 87 affordable housing units and wraparound housing supports. A team of dynamic community advocates and year-round life skills and capacity-building programming also are delivered in the space.

Special thanks to Presenting Sponsor:
