Local MP Nicola Blackwood visits the base

The latest VIP to visit the Oxford Food Bank base was local MP Nicola Blackwood who dropped in on June 6th. Nicola has shown an interest in the OFB operations since we moved into her constituency in 2012 and was keen to get an update on how things had been going recently.

Founding Directors David Cairns and Robin Aitken were on hand to pass on the good news about the continued growth of the organisation and improvements to our operations in the past twelve months such as the second chill room installed last summer and the recently purchased third van, both of which have eased the pressure and allowed further expansion to occur.

The photograph below shows Nicola taking a closer look at food crates being packed by OFB Volunteer Cathy Howard.
