Targeting food poverty across Norfolk


'Nourishing Norfolk' - A campaign targeting Food Poverty in Norfolk

NIHA Research Fellow Anna Sweeting, was honoured to attend the launch of ‘Nourishing Norfolk’, which is a campaign to raise money for an initial 15 community supermarkets to support the most vulnerable households.

The Norfolk Community Foundation has so far launched five of the supermarkets in the county, plus a mobile food store, which tours villages in Breckland.

They operate a membership scheme, allowing those in the most need to purchase everyday items at a massively reduced price to normal.

The shops sell short shelf-life food, sourced from big national networks, and surplus supplies from farmers and local supermarkets, with families saving an average 40pc on a weekly shop

NIHA works closely with The Burrell Centre and is dedicated to working in collaboration to address food poverty.
