Join the movement to feed Norfolk’s future by helping to combat food insecurity and ensure that no-one goes hungry. Support innovative and long-term food solutions for our county, enabling people to access good quality and affordable food.
In the beautiful county of Norfolk known for centuries for agriculture and food production, there are thousands of people struggling to access good quality, affordable food. On top of this, existing food inequalities within society have only widened as a result of the global pandemic.
Covid-19 has brought the reality of food poverty even more to the forefront, with people who have never asked for help before experiencing real hardship. Having lost their jobs or had income reduced, many simply cannot afford to buy enough food to properly nourish themselves and their families. In Norfolk, around 86,000 people worry that they could struggle to provide adequate food for their household in the future.
At Norfolk Community Foundation, we believe that everyone in Norfolk should be able to eat well, every day. That doesn’t mean having to rely on one of the emergency food parcels that are currently a lifeline for many families, and it should not mean having to fill your shopping basket with cheaper, low nutrition food either. It means everyone being able to afford to choose the food they would like to buy; so they can put together well-balanced, nutritious meals.
Norfolk Community Foundation has been working with local partners and national experts to devise longer term food solutions for our county. Our mission is ensure that those struggling the most can always access good quality food.

Inspired by the success of the first food hub, we are currently working with charity partners and local authorities throughout Norfolk to establish food hubs across the country to eliminate food insecurity in local communities.
