Free and low-cost food
Norwich City Council has posted details of organisations and restaurants providing free or low-cost meals/meals at the Norwich Food Network.
The Feed also lists places in Norwich where food can be accessed by those in need.
To get help from a local foodbank, you will need to be referred with a voucher.
You may also be able to get a fuel voucher for help with energy costs at some food banks.
Vouchers can be issued by a local community organisation – for instance, a school, GP, advice agency or from Broadland Housing. Apply now or call 0303 303 0003 (Tenancy Support option) for more information or to speak with one of our team.
