    Our community café service

    The Gatehouse provides a range of nutritious hot and cold food and drinks to our guests via our community café, which is a drop-in service available to individuals who are homeless, vulnerably housed and or simply seeking company at our community centre. We are open Monday-Fridays 5-7pm and Sundays 4-6pm. See our Community Centre and café page for details.

    If you are interested in volunteering to help run these sessions or you are available for a shorter time from 3.30 to 4.30pm to help make sandwiches for the café sessions please see our Volunteers page for details on how to join our team.

    Commercial and charitable organisations

    Many of the local shops and restaurants in Oxford donate food to us which they cannot use. We are also very grateful for supplies of items via the Oxford Food Hub. If you are involved in a commercial or charitable organisation and think that you might be able to help in this way, please contact us to make arrangements.
