Eat Better

Support Getting Food

Anyone can find themselves and their family in need of help for lots of different reasons. If you are struggling to feed your family, you can get help from a local foodbank, or use a community fridge. 

Most food banks will provide three days’ emergency food and support to those in need. To use some foodbanks you will need a voucher from a local support agency. Once you have a voucher, it can be taken to a nearby foodbank, to be swapped for a food parcel.

You can contact other foodbanks or some food charities yourselves for support. Look at the map below for services in your area. Have a look at their website to check if a voucher is needed. 

You can call Just One Number for support from a health professional.

Did You Know?

The Norfolk Assistance Scheme offer information and support for those in financial hardship. For emergency requests please call 01603 223392 (option 5).

The Big Norfolk Holiday Fun Programme provides holiday activities for children and young people aged 5-16 in Norfolk. If your child is 4 years old but they are in school, they can take part. It helps your child move lots, eat well and have fun.

The next Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme will be taking place during the Easter holidays.

Children who are eligible for means-tested free school meals can claim free spaces on the activities, whilst paid spots are available on many activities for those who don’t.
