STUDENTS have begun running a 'community larder' using leftover supermarket food to raise money for charity.

Activate Learning business students, based at the City of Oxford College, have started the initiative in partnership with Didcot-based charity, SOFEA.

Every Thursday from 11.30am-1.30pm, the larder will open for staff and students.

It has a monthly membership fee of £10 which allows staff and students to pick 10 items each week during that month.

The items being sold have been donated by local supermarkets, helping to reduce the amount of food that is wasted.
