Flegg Area Foodbank


We dream of a world where no one goes hungry.  A world where parents don't have to choose between falling behind on rent, risking a power cut or skipping meals.  Where children go to school with a full belly, ready to learn.  Unfortunately for more and more people this is not the case.  Are you willing to dream with us and work to turn it towards reality, where communities help each other out when things get tough?

Right now, we are bridging the gap between the world we dream of and the one we live in . Food banks are a place where people come together to make sure that those in crisis have what they need, whether food, toiletries or cleaning materials?  We also provide a listening ear, a smile, and a nod to say “It’s ok. You’ll get through this.” This is only possible due to the incredible generosity of people like you.

Along with other churches in Martham, this foodbank aims to serve the needs of those who are hungry in Martham and the surrounding villages of the Flegg area, roughly between the Rivers Thurne and Bure but not including Caister.  If you would like to donate to the Foodbank, please either leave food in carrier bags or money* in envelopes labelled ‘Foodbank’ in one of the following locations:
