How businesses can help

Norwich Foodbank is keen to partner with local businesses that are interested in making a positive contribution to their local community.
Why support Norwich Foodbank?
Partnering with the Norwich Foodbank is a great way of getting to know your community better. It's good for PR, it boosts staff morale, but most of all it allows your business to help transform lives.
What could we do?
There are lots of ways that local businesses like yours can work with us.
  • You could donate your time, skills, resources or money.
  • If you are a food manufacturer or distributor – maybe you could donate surplus food.
  • You could become a Foodbank Collection Point
  • You could run a fund raising event for us or set your staff a volunteering challenge.
  • You could set up a payroll-giving scheme - the possibilities are endless!

What one local business has done - Brandbank

Locally based business Brandbank began donating non-perishable items to us on an ad hoc basis early in 2015, but in July that year, we developed a more permanent relationship, receiving donations on a fortnightly basis.

We have been really pleased with the quality of the items received - much of which have gone straight into our stocks and on to being included in food parcels. The more eclectic items - from air fresheners and vitamins to hair dye and other beauty products - have been passed on to the agencies we work closely with (and of course our distribution centres) to then give the items on to those we both work with.

We are very grateful to Brandbank for the donations they make to us and thank them sincerely for choosing to support us in this way.
