Community Action Groups
Feeding the Gaps: Project Co-ordinator (self-employed)
Feeding the Gaps is a project to connect services providing for those in food poverty and sources of surplus food in Oxford and Oxfordshire. The project has been established by Abundance Oxford and other local community groups in collaboration with existing food services across the county.
There is a huge amount of food in Oxford, and much of it is wasted. On average, each family in the city wastes six meals a week. Yet there are still thousands of people in food poverty, without the skills, confidence or access to food to feed themselves regularly. We have a vision where these gaps are filled in, where food, and the support in how to use it, can get to those who need it. The existing organisations within this chain are all constantly running at capacity, so we have created this role to allow the right person to do something new, and something excellent.
