At a time when the most vulnerable in our communities will need our support more than ever, SOFEA (South Oxfordshire Food and Education Alliance) is planning to expand its Community Larder network to provide free groceries to as many people as possible.
This means delivering hundreds of tonnes of packets and tins, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables to those who find themselves in need.
They plan to use their existing distribution network and expand it, so that they can offer food free to members of local communities.
To do this they need our support. They need able bodied healthy symptom free people to volunteer to help them with what will be a massive logistical exercise.
They have suspended membership fees to the Community Larder in order to ensure everyone who needs it can access free food. They have set up a Justgiving page and would welcome donations to help cover the cost of giving free membership.

They had planned to start supplying people in Abingdon and have brought this forward and will be starting tomorrow (Friday 20th March).
