Abingdon Community Larder

Abingdon Council News - Mon, 11/23/2020 - 11:52

The Abingdon Community Larder is open every Friday at the Abingdon Carousel Family Centre, off Caldecott Chase ( OX14 5GZ ).

It is a Food Membership Scheme. From £3.50 a week members can choose from 10 food items in boxes and tins and jars, and as much fruit and vegetables as they want.

It is not means tested – open to all, and aims to help some people who are finding food too expensive.

The food – that would otherwise go to waste because of reasons such as over supply, comes from supermarkets like Tesco and Asda
