OxCo-op runs a weekly order-and-collect service, taking orders of seasonal food boxes for customers to pick up at our pop-up shop on Turl Street. Oxford’s food co-operative is dedicated to making ethical food accessible to everyone, and we are looking for new volunteers to help keep the shop up and running!
We rely on our amazing team of volunteers to keep us going, with a group of regular co-ordinators behind them to make sure everyone’s orders are packed and taken to our pop-up shop every Friday. Once you’ve signed up we can talk about what the role requires and if it’s something you think you’d be up for: you can also always shadow us for a week or two, and get a feel for what the shift is about.
Non-student volunteers are welcomed! If you're not a student and you'd like to volunteer with us, please email email@example.com.
OxCo-op was set up 2012 by a group of friends who refused to accept that a student budget necessarily means a weekly shop to the local chain supermarket. Four years on the group has grown, connecting students from across Oxford to local organic veg supplied by Cultivate and organic/Fairtrade student staples from Bristol co-op Essentials.
Oxford Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, training sessions, volunteering projects and other activities, and can reimburse expenses such as bus tickets. We also provide ongoing support for the students we work with, so if you have particular accessibility needs, including special educational needs, please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can make the activity more accessible.
