Supporting Diversity Led Food Enterprises

We support diverse groups to grow their own ideas for socially minded businesses by locating seed funding, affordable/free space and advice, so they can become self sufficient in their own right. We are currently working with two social enterprises – No Vice Ice CIC, Damascus Rose Kitchen and Oxford Community Action. Find out more about these projects on our partners tab.

If you have an idea for a social enterprise, get in touch here

Our partnership has been lucky to work with a team of fantastic volunteers across all of our services. Our volunteers have helped with all sorts of jobs, including helping pack/deliver parcels during OCA’s Wednesday food distribution session, stewarding community meals at Flo’s, delivering cooked meals around OX4 on foot or by bike and bringing the project to life with their fantastic ideas, dedication and passion for the cause.
