Feeding the Frontline
Thank you so much for your support for our initiative to provide free food for Oxford’s frontline NHS workers. We made thousands of momos and fed hundreds of NHS staff. Your contributions made an enormous difference to Oxford's hospitals at a time of significant uncertainty and need.
Our fundraising is on hold for the time being as canteens are up and running again at the JR and Churchill hospitals where we made most of our drops, and food is no longer the primary need. The Oxford Hospitals Charity, which facilitated our work, is currently shifting its focus to support staff in other ways.
We will update you if this situation changes and we need your support again in the future. In the meantime, we are continuing to offer NHS staff a 20% discount on all our food. Please get in touch for more details.
A few details about Taste Tibet's Feeding the Frontline initiative:
This was an entirely not-for profit service. All contributions raised through the site went towards producing fresh, healthy meals for NHS frontline workers. Donations were not spent on management costs, administration, advertising or rent.
This is how we spent the donations we received:
Cost of ingredients
Food packaging, bags
Chefs - ordering, prepping, cooking, cleaning
Dispatch team: packaging, labelling, delivery
Transport - use of our van, petrol, parking
Hygiene supplies - masks, gloves, cleaning supplies etc.
Huge thanks for all your contributions big and small. We couldn't have done it without you. Your support and generosity has been completely overwhelming, and it has really deepened our connection both to you and to the wider community here in Oxford. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
