We are very sad to announce that Oxford Food Bank will be closing from 12pm on Friday 27th March. This has been a difficult decision but we have looked at government advice and it is clear that the risk to our staff and volunteers, and the charities we support, mean that we must temporarily discontinue our operation. 

We would like to thank our incredible volunteers who have gone over and above during this period of uncertainty. However, our trustees have agreed that we cannot safely and responsibly continue without a supervising core of staff or experienced volunteers.

We can redirect any surplus food to other organisations while we are closed. Contact: 07856 610368, Thank you for your support.

The Oxford Food Bank collects surplus fresh food from local supermarkets and wholesalers…

… and supplies it for free to over 100 charities in Oxford and Oxfordshire

Note: our operations have expanded considerably since this video was made but it gives an accurate picture of food waste and how we are working to redress this in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
