Welcome to Oxford CEF
CEF stands for Community Emergency Foodbank
Why do we need a Food Bank?
Despite our Welfare system in this country many thousands of people still go hungry through debt, sickness, sudden job loss, addiction, marriage breakdown, or simply delays in receiving benefit.
A number of similar projects which have started up in cities all over the country have been amazed to discover this well hidden poverty right in their midst.
In 2016 CEF fed 1483 adults and 868 kids, that's 2,351 people in total.
Good Friday Opening
CEF will be open as usual on Good Friday, 14th April 2017.

Radio Oxford Interview
Here is an interview with Jane Benyon, CEF founder, that appeared on Radio Oxford in summer 2012:
"At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality”
