The King’s Lynn Foodbank started in October 2011 as an initiative of Churches Together in King’s Lynn and now feeds over 300 people a month, providing emergency food to local people in crisis and support that is clear, practical and full of compassion.

King’s Lynn Foodbank Chairman, Adam Whittle said: “We see people with some really big needs. They come to us because they need help with food but it’s much more than that. Sometimes the problems are more than we can humanly process but we have a big God and we have the opportunity to pray with people and we’ve seen some wonderful testimonies”.

He continued: “We’ve been amazed with the generosity of volunteers, members of the public, local schools, churches, supermarkets and business. We achieve incredible, life-changing things on the budget we have.”

Last year King’s Lynn Foodbank also started an ‘Eat Well, Spend Less’ initiative to help people cook well on a budget.
