Please help us with some food donations – thank you

The Great Yarmouth Foodbank was particularly busy in August and have run low on food, and are expecting to continue to be busy. We are appealing for more donations from the public


There has been an  increase in  demand during the summer . Most people who come to Foodbanks for emergency food are not homeless. They are families who have hit hard times, people who have been made redundant, become ill or are experiencing benefit delay: they are the UK’s hidden hungry. Great Yarmouth is among the worst 10% of all areas nationally for levels of deprivation. Any non perishable food tinned or otherwise is welcomed along with any veggies from the garden etc. We are grateful for all your kind donations. We managed to help families with children on free school meals over the summer break by providing food for pack ups.
