Millions of tons of perfectly edible food is sent to landfill every year. This comes from all levels of the food industry.
By working with food manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers the Oxford Food Bank saves up to 10 tons of good quality fresh food from being thrown away each week.
Our volunteers work 7 days a week in all weathers.
Clocking up 15,000 volunteering hours per year.
We save a remarkable range of food from humble potatoes to exotic fruits, from white sliced bread to fancy cakes!
