If you feel you could donate then I am happy to collect them locally to Wymondham area/ be a collection point and pass the items on. Alternatively there are collection banks in many places… you can see the list of locations here http://www.networknorwich.co.uk/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=176585

In the Campaign to End Child Poverty report, published in February 2013, Norwich is named as the authority with the highest percentage of children in poverty in the East of England; this report also shows that Norwich is in the top 5% of authorities in the UK for child poverty.

In the 12 months ended 31st March 2015, Norwich foodbank provided 8,905 (5,833 adults and 3,072 children) local people in crisis with three days’ worth of food via introductions from over 80 local care agencies.  They rely totally on generous donations from local people and organisations.

The Norwich Foodbank gives three days of emergency food to individuals and families in crisis. Local care professionals in the Norwich area refer people to the foodbank using a voucher. The clients exchange their voucher for food supplies, here they also receive a hot drink, a listening ear and signposting to other professionals who can help them out of their crisis. In rural areas they have Emergency Food Boxes, or give boxes directly to local care-workers.

 

Please help, however small your donation.

Much love
