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.

Jane's Walk for CEF 2015

Jane Benyon, CEF Founder, again walked a mammoth walk for CEF. This time it was 210 miles from Brighton to London, via the Isle of Wight. You can read more details, sponsor her and read her walking blog here.

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”

St Paul,
2nd letter to the Corinthians
