Good Food is Good News

Run in partnership between Rose Hill Methodist Church and St. Mary the Virgin Iffley

Community Cupboard is now open for families and individuals to come and collect food. Please contact Libby for a time slot (07874 339996 or libby dot hawkness-smith at oxfordmethodists dot org dot uk). Please make sure you bring a mask and bags to collect food when you come. If you are unable to make a session in a particular week, please contact Libby and we can help you to make alternative arrangements. Please note that only one member of each family will be allowed into the church each week, and that our cafe is outdoors.

We run a food bank and outdoor cafe at Rose Hill Methodist Church on Wednesdays from 1.15pm-3.30pm. Anyone can pop in and have something to eat, share in conversation and get information about local services and groups that run in the area. There is also food available to take away for those who need it, based on a referral system that any of our volunteers on duty will be able to explain. For a list of organisations that can issue referral cards, see here. Most of our the food we have available to take away comes from Oxford Food Hub, The Porch and FareShare. We also supplement from our own stocks.

Every year, we ask those currently coming to us for food to complete a questionnaire. The results of our most recent survey (March 2021) can be found here.

“Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.
