Banbury Foodbank is a initiative run by Christians in Banbury with The Peoples Church taking the lead, under the Charity Trussell Trust.

The Foodbank gives emergency food and support to people in crisis. Food is donated by schools, churches, businesses, and individuals, who donate non-perishable, in-date food.

Volunteers at the warehouse sort food to check that it’s in date, and then deliver it to the distribution centres ready to be given to people in need.

Frontline care professionals identify people in need; such as doctors, health visitors, schools, social workers, and the CAB. and issue them with a foodbank voucher.


Foodbank clients bring their vouchers to one of four Foodbank Centres, where it can be redeemed for 3 days emergency food.


Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea or coffee, and are able to signpost people to other agencies able to help solve their longer term problems. Clients are also offered prayer.


The four centres are are open between 10.00am and 12.00pm:

  • St Joseph s Church – Monday 

  • The People's Church – Tuesday and Friday 

  • West Street Methodist Church – Wednesday 

  • St Francis Church – Thursday 

If you would like to donate food (or toiletries and house cleaning products which are offered free to clients) please give to Peter Goode or Helen Madeiros.
