Oxford Bus Company deliver chocolate boost to local food bank

Oxford Bus Company made a sweet delivery via Quality Street this week. But it is not a new road name in the county.

Bus drivers handed 120 tins of Quality Street chocolate treats to a local food bank.

The chocolatey stash was left over from treats purchased by bosses to say thanks to the key workers at Oxford Bus Company. So, the community spirted team decided to drop off the haul at the Oxford Food Hub.

And to share the goodwill across the city, it also put five tins in its Visitor Information Point in Queen’s Lane and Travel Shop at Gloucester Green for customers to enjoy.

Oxford Food Hub, formerly Oxford Food Bank, is a centre of surplus food re-distribution in the county. It rescues surplus food from wholesalers, supermarkets and restaurants and shares it via charities and community organisations.

Phil Southall, Oxford Bus Company Managing Director, said: “We initially shared chocolates with colleagues as a thank you following what had been a very challenging year. We had quite a lot left, and colleagues thought it would be a nice gesture to share them with our passengers and Oxford Food Hub. We’re pleased to say they’ve been very well received.”
