The food is being provided by Oxford Food Hub, a non-profit organisation which works to mitigate surplus food and waste in support of charities across the county.

One of the organisers said: “I’m motived by the idea of feeding the community with surplus vegetables – there are a lot of volunteers I involved and there’s a lot of feel good vibes going on.”
