Cromer & District Foodbank
Helping local people in crisis

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

How to get help

Get A Foodbank Voucher

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.

The Process...

1. Get In Touch With Us
If you call us on 07826 376343 or we can take you through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.
2. Arrange A Visit To The Referral Agency
They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.
3. Bring Your Foodbank Voucher To Us
In Stalham we open between 13:30-15:00 on Fridays. You can find us in The Stables. When you arrive, we’ll welcome you with a warm drink and our trained volunteers will chat with you about your situation. We’ll also discuss any dietary needs you may have and exchange your foodbank voucher for a parcel of three days of emergency food. We’ll also help to support you in any other ways that we can. Most of our foodbank centres offer a cafe style environment and our aim is to provide non-judgemental support at the point of crisis.
