What is Replenish?

The Replenish scheme aims to engage Oxfordshire citizens on the issue of food waste and composting. We enable people to take action in their communities, by giving them the training and support to set up projects in their local areas. Our current volunteers are involved in a wide range of initiatives, from setting up community fridges to tackle food waste and food poverty, to running food surplus demos to help people cook using their leftovers.

Community Fridge training programme 2019

Replenish is launching a training programme to help people set up community fridges in their local area. To find out more about this, click here.

‘Healthy eating’ cookery course seeks volunteers

Enthusiastic volunteers are needed to assist with free cookery courses aimed at parents, carers and older men. For more information, click here.

Would you like a volunteer at your event?

Replenish volunteers can:

  • hold a stall at your event, sharing tips on how to reduce food waste and how to create compost from your food scraps and garden waste
  • help your organisation, school or business develop its own plan for reducing and composting food waste
  • run a skills-based workshop, teaching practical skills such as cooking with surplus food, making your own wormery, using a bokashi bin, and more
  • give a talk, presentation or Q&A session for your group

If you’d like to book a volunteer for your event, click here, or to find out more, email the Project Officer.
