The Cromer & District Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, that help local people in crisis, believing no one should have to face going hungry.
They have a session in The Stables on Friday afternoons between 13:15-15:00 at which they can provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to those who have been referred to them as being in crisis.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances for their clients they work with local agencies. If those agencies feel someone is struggling to put food on the table, they will issue a foodbank voucher. Those agencies include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.
Stalham Community Fridge was established by members of the church with help and funding from North Norfolk District Council and Hubbub UK. It operates from The Stables. It is open each weekday. See the Church Diary for the times.
It's aim is to recycle food, that would otherwise go to landfill. All are invited to come and take any of the available food at no charge. Tesco, and other local food stores, that have surplus stock that is approaching it's best before or use by date is offered to the Community Fridge. Members of the community who have surpluses over home grown fruit and vegetables are also encouraged to bring their produce to the Fridge.
