SILO is a welcoming and diverse group of friends who come together to Serve, Inspire, and Love Others in our community.

Our History

SILO began ten years ago with a small group of dedicated volunteers who wanted to connect to others in Oxford. As relationships were built and stories shared, it became obvious that there were many needs in the community. While many people were hungry for a meal, many were also hungry for friendship and connection.

The first free community meal was planned and invitations were hand delivered to new friends and strangers. The free monthly meals continue to be a central place for people who are isolated or hungry to come together and get their fill. Since guests at the meal come from all walks of life, there is a beautiful and natural community formed which crosses conventional boundaries of gender, race and economic status.

Everyone is welcome.
