to those less fortunate than many of us...

Norwich is home to many, and, we like to think, welcoming and friendly to strangers and caring towards those who need help. It’s Norwich’s DIY, loving way to do all we can to support others, and, as we approach the colder months of the year, we wanted to give you an outline of just some of what wonderful volunteers do for the homeless, lonely and hungry all through the year in our fine city. If you have any time or food, please try to help alongside them if you can. Moreover, let’s all remember to be grateful for what we have at this often challenging time of year.

Norwich Open Christmas

A voluntary project providing a traditional hot meal and entertainment for up to 350 homeless and lonely people on Christmas Day 11-5. Tere will be free entertainment throughout the day including live music, free bingo and quizzes. 400 Christmas lunches will be cooked, get free transport there and back if prearranged, check out the selection of free clothing and take home a guest food parcel. With Christmas cake and mince pies mid-afternoon, there’s no way you’ll leave hungry. You don’t need to book, just turn up on the day.

Norwich Breakfast Club Foodcycle

You’ll find the kind volunteers from the Norwich Breakfast Club on Saturday mornings at the Haymarket from 8-9am, serving up food to anyone who needs it.

FoodCycle Norwich brings together volunteers, surplus food and a kitchen to create free nutritious meals for all the community. Tey aim to tackle


food wastage by bringing awareness and addressing food poverty through freshly cooked meals. Everyone is welcome to join them for dinner every Friday at 7pm, at the Friends Meeting House, on Upper Goat Lane.

The Feed

Tis stall on Norwich Market is run by volunteers and aims to help the homeless – also their sandwiches are molto delicioso.


Head over to Castle Street for 100% vegetarian, healthy and homemade food prepared using local, fairtrade and organic ingredients. KindaKafe is part of the Missing Kind charity, and while you’re there why not ‘pay it forward’ - pay for a meal or a drink for someone in need.

The Haymarket

Norwich Food Hub

A volunteer led, non-for-profit, Community Interest Company, Norwich Food Hub collect surplus food from retailers including Greggs, Tesco & M&S. All the food is then redistributed in partnership with Leeway and other organisations helping people in food poverty.

Moreover, don’t forget you can donate sanitary items like tampons and pads in any of Norwich’s public libraries.

We’ve tried to introduce you to as many voluntary organisations on here as we can, but be aware many other individuals and groups are involved in helping others in our fine city!

All these groups can be found on Facebook.
