THE NEED

The Need

Today in the Borough of Gt Yarmouth there are families and single people struggling to buy food and other essentials. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis can mean going hungry. What would YOU do if you…
  • Were made redundant and couldn’t find work?
  • Had to flee your home due to domestic violence?
  • Had difficulty filling in forms so your benefit claim was delayed?
  • Received an unexpected bill and had no savings?
  • Had no family/support network to help you in financial difficulties?
The Foodbank  is here to support local people in these and similar crises, by providing emergency food, inc. baby food, as well as adult and baby toiletries.

My name is Michael G from Hemsby and I’ve had the good fortune to come into contact with L from the Gt Yarmouth Foodbank. I was down and out at the time, waiting for documents to work from the Home Office , but today I’m strong/  working and happy thanks to he FoodBank going out of their way to bring boxes of food all the way out to our doorstep in Hemsby. They made us feel comfortable and as a result we are now moving up. Thanks
