The Carterton Food Angels look provide a balanced Food Parcel to clients. This includes basics such as pasta, rice as well as tinned items. We also look to provide fresh fruit and vegetables and bread when available.
The Carterton Food Angels also have support from the villagers of Alvescot and from the Meadow Way Christmas Light extravaganza. All donations are very well received and greatly appreciated.
Carterton Food Angels also liaise with West Oxfordshire District Council and many referrals come from them. We also have regular meetings with the District Council where we share best practice with other Food Banks.
In addition to Council referrals we also get referrals from Churches and local schools.
Our Service to the Community
The Carterton Food Angels are very fortunate to have excellent support from Morrisons in Carterton. They provide us with fresh fruit and vegetables when available as well as the Green Food Bank donation bags which shoppers can buy. In addition we have superb support from Bourton Road Butchers who provide fresh meat for the Carterton Food Angels. We also collect donations 3 times a week from Marks and Spencer’s in Witney. Mayfield Eggs in New Yatt have been superb supporters of the Food Bank and provide us with a box of 180 eggs each week and have done so since the start of Lockdown. We also have excellent relations with the Chipping Norton Larder and collect any excess from them weekly. We work in partnership with other Food Banks including Exeter Hall in Kidlington and Cowley.
