Carillion van of cans!

Carillion - website

Tuesday 22 September 2015.

We sometimes get a pleasant surprise when somebody drops in to our base with some food they want to donate. Maybe excess apples from their garden or a few marrows from an allotment. On this particular occasion we were treated to a bigger surprise than usual when a van pulled up outside packed full of various canned products being donated by Carillion.

Although the Oxford Food Bank supplies mainly fresh fruit and vegetables plus bakery and dairy products we do also take out some packaged goods and this haul was a veritable treasure trove of canned fruit, soups, baked beans, vegetables and much, much more. The charities that we deliver to will be extremely happy with this valuable addition to our supplies so a very big thank you to Carillion from all of us.
