We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
King’s Lynn Foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.
Here are the opening times and locations for our foodbank centres. Everyone who comes to the Foodbank for emergency food needs to have a valid foodbank voucher.

If you need help from our foodbank you must first try and get a voucher
Contact a referral agency to get a voucher
You can get a voucher by contacting an appropriate local support agency. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.
Agencies we work with are listed below. Even though their offices may have limited opening hours due to Covid restrictions, you should still be able to contact them by phone to get a voucher code which you can then bring to us. More info here!
