Oxford Community Action

The OX4Food Crew, our alliance of 9 local organisations, is launching a Winter Appeal to help its members cover their costs and continue to provide their services through the roughest months of the year

This partnership was founded in 2020 in response to the crisis created by the pandemic, lockdowns, loss of employment, cuts to income and other factors that made it difficult for many members of our community to access food.

The 9 members are:

Oxford Community Act

Waste2Taste CIC, Food with a Conscience

Flo’s – The Place in the Park

Ark-T @arktoxford

Oxford Mutual Aid

Donnington Doorstep

Syrian Sisters @syrian_sisters

Oxford City Farm

No Vice Ice CIC

All partners offer free / extremely accessible healthy food, employ surplus ingredients that would otherwise go to waste, offer free activities for the community and workshops that teach important skills and offer work experience, and so much more

In December and January, the challenge for all organisations is to find funding for our Christmas free community meals, parcels with food and other essentials for the Holidays, and presents for the most vulnerable members of our community, as well as covering the costs of energy and the running of our operations

Since we know that Oxford supports our work and people are keen to help and get involved, we have created the Winter Appeal to collect donations that will assist us in continuing our work for the community

If you can afford it, please consider making a donation here: https://www.givey.com/ox4foodcrewwinterappeal

We know this has been a difficult year after a series of difficult years and many people might find it impossible to make a cash donation

You can still help by sharing this Appeal with everyone you know: the more people we reach, the more small donations will add to the pot.

If you’d like, we can send you a file you could share in your WhatsApp and Telegram groups, email lists, Discord channels, workplace, colleagues, family etc. just reach out and we’ll send the poster to you!

Thank you
