In their own words…

‘We formed in March 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, we have been working non-stop to help our most at-risk friends and neighbours. We make weekly deliveries to more than 2,000 people in 834 households across Oxford. Some people come to us themselves, and others are referred by social services and charities. Our recipients include everyone from parents with newborn babies to the elderly and those living with dementia.

We provide 330 households with regular food and baby supplies, deliver 190 emergency food parcels a month, and cook over 650 meals a week

OMA is funded entirely by public donations and small grants, and has only 2.5 full-time equivalent employees. We are proudly a volunteer driven organisation.’
