JERICHO COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

Jericho Pantry

Posted - February 10, 2023

The main purpose of the Pantry is to make food that would otherwise be thrown away accessible to people who live locally who can make use of it.

Everyone is welcome to come along and help themselves to whatever they can use and/or take items for neighbours who may find it difficult to collect them.  

The Jericho Pantry is a collaboration between the Oxford Food Hub, JCA and St Barnabas Church and is made possible by the volunteer Community Ambassadors who give their time to run it.

St Barnabas Church is open for dry goods on Thursdays at 2-4pm and Sundays 12-2pm. 

The Jericho Community Centre is open on Tuesdays, at 5.30 -6.30. (please enter through the café door)
This session includes both dry goods, tinned and fresh items and a free cup of tea or coffee when you arrive.

Did you know?

Where the name Jericho comes from?

The name Jericho is probably taken from the parable of the Good Samaritan. Traditionally the name was given to places where travellers who arrived after the town gates had closed at sunset could find lodgings overnight.

How religious we are?

In the 2001 Census, some 50% of Jericho residents said they were Christian, 2.2% Muslim, 1.9% Buddhist and 1.2% professed other religions, while 34% of people said they had no religion. In Oxford as a whole the proportion with no religion was 24%.
