Norfolk Foodbank wants to find 100 supporters 

Waveney Foodbank has launched an appeal to find 100 supporters prepared to donate £3 a month to the Christian charity to cover the monthly cost of its warehouse and office facility on the Brome industrial estate near Diss.

Last year, the charity fed 2500 people with its emergency three-day food boxes. This equates to around 38,000 meals, which are distributed via church centres in Diss, Long Stratton, Harleston and Bungay.

The operation is run from a warehouse at Brome near Diss, from where 19 tonnes of food has been distributed in the last 12 months by a team of dedicated volunteers. Collections are made at supermarkets, churches and schools across South Norfolk and North Suffolk.

Waveney Foodbank Operations Manager, Matthew Scade, said: “We have launched an appeal to try to find enough supporters to cover the £300 a month cost of our warehouse, which will mean we can use more of our money to go towards providing food boxes and free weekly meals which we serve at the DC3 church on Vinces Road in Diss.”

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
