Charities we Support

O'Hanlon House deliveryOxford Food Bank currently supply around 80 local registered charities with free food, thereby reducing their costs and helping to ensure that less fortunate members of the local community receive a wide range of nutritous, fresh food. Although the majority of these charities are based in Oxford itself, a handful of charities in Abingdon and Didcot also receive food deliveries from us. The number of charities supplied with food has tripled in the last four years and will no doubt continue to increase over the foreseeable future.

The issue of food poverty and how it should be tackled has frequently been in the news over recent years and especially during the all party Governmental enquiry which took place in 2014. In the meantime you can read an interesting report by Sustain from 2000 which provides insights into the situation at that time, regarding the redistribution of surplus food to help tackle food poverty. Some things have changed, not least the Oxford Food Bank starting up in 2009, but the importance of food banks as part of the solution remains obvious for all to see.

Please note that we do not supply food direct to individuals or families. If you are in a position where you personally need support, but do not have access to food through another charity, then you should contact your local Social Services department. Even food banks which do supply individuals directly, such as the Community Emergency Foodbank (CEF) in Oxford, require them to be referred by Social Services or another agency beforehand.
