Waveney Foodbank provides food to those whose financial circumstances make it difficult, or impossible, to have enough to eat. We collect and store donated food, parcel it into boxes containing a three day supply with a balanced diet. Boxes of food are distributed using a voucher system, so that welfare professionals make the decisions about who is genuinely in need. Vouchers are available from social services, CAB and a variety of other welfare organisations such as clergy, doctors, housing association.
Waveney Foodbank operates along the Waveney valley from just west of Diss down to Bungay, Beccles, Halesworth, and a large area of rural countryside south of the river down to, and including, Framlingham, Stradbroke and Eye. We operate 8 "Distribution Centres", open mainly on Tuesdays and Fridays, where people can redeem their vouchers, but are prepared to deliver if necessary or supply boxes as required to welfare organisations.
