NorfolkFeeds5kSuppFull350A special newspaper supplement documenting scores of churches and Christian projects across Norfolk which took part in the NorfolkFeeds5000 project has been published.

The four-page paper gives details of many of the projects from right across Norfolk which help to feed a staggering 7,000 people every single month of the year through foodbanks, soup runs, community meals, Messy Churches and dozens of other innovative schemes.

The supplement can be downloaded here and is also printed in the  Summer edition of Christian newspaper Good News for Norwich & Norfolk which is out this weekend.

It will also be reprinted inside the Norwich Evening News on Monday May 15.

About the project

Norfolk Feeds 5000 is a research project which aims to establish the extent to which the Christian community across Norfolk is meeting the simple command of Jesus to "feed the hungry".

Christian churches, groups and individuals across Norfolk meet the needs of the hungry and the thirsty every day of the year through foodbanks, free community meals, homeless projects, soup runs, Messy Church and other activities.
A simple survey has been conducted to attempt to quantify the extent to which this is happening and the findings of the survey will be published here, including many of the stories about the projects which feed people throughout Norfolk.
The project is supported by Celebrate Norfolk, Network Norfolk, Christian Aid, the Diocese of Norwich, Good News for Norwich & Norfolk and Bright Map and is named after the Bible story of the Feeding of The 5000.

If your Christian food-related project is not featured in our case studies and you would like us to include you, please send details, a fact file, a picture and web links to us by clicking here

The research and reporting team behind NorfolkFeeds5000 is from Network Norwich & Norfolk: Jenny Seal, Helen Baldry, Tony Rothe & Keith Morris.
