Elizabeth Izod and Mylene Carrara from Gousto handing over the giant cheque to OFB Coordinator David Kay
Following on from our recent article about Gousto supporting the Oxford Food Bank during their September launch period in Oxfordshire here are the results …..
OFB benefitted to the tune of £1 for every box of chef-designed, healthy recipes and ingredients sold by Gousto in Oxfordshire throughout September, and in total received an impressive £1144!
In early October Gousto representatives Mylene Carrara and Elizabeth Izod visited the OFB base to hand over a giant-sized cheque for that amount, as pictured above. We are extremely grateful to Gousto for this support (as we are to all of our corporate sponsors), which is a significant help towards achieving our annual fundraising target of £70,000, needed to cover our running costs. We wish them well in the future and applaud the zero food waste approach they adhere to within their own operations.
