The Norwich Foodbank’s Christmas Pack a Hamper Campaign invites you to put together a single, couple or family food box, which will already have some items in it from the Foodbank’s warehouse that it is well supplied with.

Please order the size of the box – single, couple or family – by phone on 01603 251733 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . You can then collect it from the Foodbank warehouse at 51 Ivy Road, NR5 8BF.
