OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. For your convenience, OLIO can also be used for non-food household items, too.
Wycombe Food Hub is not a food bank!
Our dedicated group of volunteers collects surplus food from wholesalers, supermarkets, and other organisations and offers these products for sale via our shop. Everyone wins – we reduce food waste going to landfills and provide tasty fresh produce to anyone in High Wycombe.
We also have an Artisan area where specialist meats, condiments, tea, coffee, drinks, etc are sold.
Proceeds from Bobkins Bazaar and the artisan section are used to fund the overall operation of WFH including buying food.
Wycombe Food Hub bridges the gap between retail shops and foodbanks to ensure good food is available to everyone at an affordable price.
FRESH, FROZEN, AMBIENT
Unlike a traditional retail shop, nothing in the main self-select area is priced. We operate on a model which allows you to level fill a shopping basket with anything on display for just £3.
If you need more, you can add a second basket for an extra £2.
For those less fortunate we offer a FREE community bag of food.
It quickly became apparent that there was a growing need for food support in High Wycombe and One Can moved to a locker at Big Yellow. The organisation was registered as a charity in 2012 and in 2014, the Wesley Church in High Wycombe became a distribution hub. This allowed people to pick their parcels and enjoy a cup of tea afterwards.
One can has a referral only process.
If in need please reach out to a professional.
The Community Pantry , which is open every Thursday 08:30 until 11:30 at Christ Church Flackwell Heath. They are at the rear of the building – look for the flags.It’s a food bank, where you don’t need a referral & all food is free. Things are tough for lots of people, if you know someone who is struggling, please tell people to come along or send a neighbour/friend/family member – they understand it is difficult sometimes to reach out for help.
