We are a voluntary group formed by members of local Christian churches.  Our aim is to provide food parcels to people within the Kidlington, Woodstock, Chipping Norton and Charlbury area. The parcels will contain essential food for individuals and families in case of emergency, covering the time it takes for other social care infrastructure to come into play.


Foodbank continued operating from its centres in Kidlington, Chipping Norton and Woodstock throughout the pandemic and is obviously still very busy, given the current economic situation. So donations remain very welcome and much needed. Thank you to everyone who has been donating food and money and to all the volunteers enabling this to happen. For the latest update, see here
