This year, make sure your office party benefits people and planet by booking a ‘Good Food’ party experience.  Options for teams include chocolate-making, bread-baking, cooking up your own party menu from surplus food or brewing your own team beer.

Contact Hannah at mail@goodfoodoxford.org to book your ‘party with a conscience’!

Looking for an Away Day for your team that’s a bit different or has a social, sustainable ethos? Look no further, GFO and its partners offer a wide range of activities to tickle the taste buds and warm the heart!

GFO is a network for a better food system in Oxford, working together for healthy, fair, sustainable and tasty food.  Partners sign up to the ‘Good Food Charter’ so all the Away Day experiences offered help create a healthy and sustainable food culture in Oxford.

A wide range of fun activities to choose from

The experiences we offer are great for team building, improving communication and motivating your team.

How about helping out with practical activities at Oxford’s very own City Farm? Enjoy a scrumptious lunch made from surplus food, which means you are supporting the Oxford Food Bank. Or even let the folk at Waste2Taste teach your team how to make your own lunch from surplus food. And how about learning knife skills from one of Oxfordshire’s top chefs? We offer all sorts of cooking and baking experiences.

And it’s not all about food – fancy brewing your own team beer with social enterprise Tap Social? Or discovering new, local wines on a vineyard tour? Or let Edible Oxford teach you how to make wild berry cordial, just one of many plant-related courses they offer.

“It was great fun and everyone enjoyed knowing that it was all in aid of such a worthy cause. Everyone was incredibly impressed by the Waste2 Taste lunch and the team enjoyed the beer making.  We will be sampling our new creation at a team event! 

What do others say?

Don’t take our word for it, hear from staff from construction company Grosvenor about the two different ‘Good Food’ Away Days they took part in:

“We felt we learnt a lot and would definitely recommend it to other people. We can’t fault the day at all.”

If you need to do some work during your Away Day, we can usually find appropriate meeting rooms and facilities for you near your chosen activity.

“The event space is excellent and your planning of the day meant it ran really smoothly.”

Let GFO tailor the perfect Away Day for your organisation, be it a full day or half day, concentrating on one activity or fitting several different experiences into the day. To find out more and book an Away Day, email mail@goodfoodoxford.org.uk
