OKFP have recently celebrated our first year anniversary and can confirm that the provided emergency food parcels to over 10,000 people in these 12 months thanks to the incredible generosity of local shops and residents.
April 2021 saw us open our OKFP Hub and Community Pantry which is open Monday-Friday 12.00-4.00pm providing a variety of services for local families including a fresh fruit and veg stall, Chatty Cafe, free wifi and a mini library. We will be starting music lessons, dancing classes and an array of activities in the months ahead to engage socially with local residents.
Our team of 30 volunteers work tirelessly to run our project and it was with great pleasure that we found out last month that we were not only awarded the Provost Award for WDC Community Team of 2021 but also were named Citizens of the Year. We celebrated with our very own Garden Party and lunch at the Twisted Thistle where it all began for us last year.
We continue to strive to help vulnerable families in our community and surrounding areas and do not have any criteria attached to any of our services - if you need help, we will help you - it’s as simple as that.
