The Feed is a not for profit social enterprise and charity providing catering services. Our social purpose is to prevent poverty, hunger and homelessness in Norwich.
We provide supported work experience within our social café and catering enterprise to people who face a barrier to employment. We work with people who have been at risk of homelessness, had mental health problems, addiction issues, an offence history, or other major barriers.
We use food as a catalyst to motivate change, improve confidence and self belief and gain the employment skills they need to move forward into a more fulfilling life. All profits from our catering business and social café support our purpose.
We provide a Community Fridge at The Feed open Monday – Friday 2-4pm located in The Feed Café 78-80 Prince of Wales Road, Norwich. The Community Fridge provides people with the opportunity to access healthy food as well as addressing food poverty and waste. For more details please visit Community Fridge at The Feed on Facebook.
We run a women’s only project that is delivered by women for women only, giving individuals the opportunity to build confidence, self-esteem, increase wellbeing and employability skills. For more details please email Support@thefeed.org.uk
We are a founding partner of the Pathways Norwich rough sleeping outreach service, a consortium of organisations and charities in Norwich working together to address the issue of rough sleeping in Norwich.
The Feed’s Social Supermarket offers affordable groceries for people who are struggling to afford the rising cost of living. We provide fresh, chilled and frozen food, household goods and toiletries at an average of 50% of supermarket prices. We also offer a Community Fridge with free fruit and vegetables, and a Hygiene Bank of free period products.
