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.
In 2018, we opened a training centre and café at Prince of Wales Road. We also run our busy catering enterprise from here, delivering delicious food to the lovely people of Norwich.
In the last 12 months we have worked with partners to develop a Sustainable Food Strategy for Norwich, producing a Food Poverty Action Plan for Norwich.
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.
