New Food Bank for Oxfordshire

26 March 2012, 16:07

After struggling to afford to feed her children when they were young - a woman's started up a food bank in Oxfordshire to help families who are hard-up.

Joanne Cypher's set up the centre in West Oxfordshire, the first of its kind there.

She's told Heart despite being a rich area there are pockets of deprivation and she's looking for people to donate food.

The foodbank is currently based in Bampton but Mrs Cypher is hoping to find premesis in Witney.

She battled to afford to feed her children 14 years ago when foodbanks weren't really around and only got through it with the help of family and friends.
