Happy New Year from Bicester Foodbank!
We’d like to say a BIG thank you to the Foodbank volunteers and the local community for their ongoing support during 2021, be it individuals, local organisations and groups and many more. We couldn’t help local people in need without you!
We’ve had a very busy December with a variety of projects in place:
- A Christmas Toy Shop – organised by Jane. Foodbank supported by referring people and the project helped approximately 300 children and 200 adults!
- Salvation Army Christmas Meal – Foodbank and Tesco provided food, Heyford School provided the hampers and a Christmas Meal and hamper was provided to approximately 20members of the local community.
- Tesco 100 Christmas Meal Hampers – Tesco collected Christmas puddings, Mince pies, Gravy, Stuffing, vegetables & a sweet treat from customers at Lakeview Drive store. Foodbank supported by providing £10 vouchers for each parcel, and Del & Doug were superstars in issuing the hampers to approximately 80 households, meaning no-one went without a Christmas Dinner! Cooper School made approximately 90 Christmas cards which were included in the hampers.
