Andrew Smith MP today handed over the fruits of Oxford Labour’s drive in support of local foodbank.
Andrew, together with his constituency office staff, local councillors, and with the support of the Oxford Labour Party, has led a donation drive for items such as tinned food, cereals, pasta, rice, sauces and biscuits, to help vulnerable people who have fallen upon hard times.
Andrew, pictured with Jane Benyon, Head of Oxford Community Emergency Foodbank, said: “It is disgraceful that people in the UK today should have to rely on food banks.
"In Oxford we are very lucky to have excellent organisations, like the Community Emergency Foodbank, which provide a vital support to local people who are most in need.”
