Café with social mission opens in Norwich

December 14, 2018 by  

A café which has a social purpose opened within Norwich recently.

The Feed is a social enterprise which is all about homelessness prevention. Its aim is to provide support and training to those at risk of homelessness as well as to help addicts and those with mental health issues with the significant obstacles presented by employment. Located on Norwich’s Prince of Wales Road, the café was launched with an event. Poster printing can be used to advertise the opening of new businesses.

Crowdfunding raised approximately £20,000 for the Community Interest Company. The Feed might continue to challenge stereotypes of the homeless. Kettle Foods has an agreement with the CIC and the hope is that attitudes in the private and public sector can be positively affected by more campaigning.

The Feed’s corporate fundraiser, Lucy Webb, told the Eastern Daily Press:

“It’s been very humbling to have so much support from the community in our new venture. We hope The Feed will be a place where everybody feels welcome.”

Webb is clear that the organisation will make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable people. It is not simply a question of delivering food at affordable prices. The provision of training and support may help individuals to turn their lives around.

Customers will have the chance to visit The Feed every day of the week except Sunday when it is closed.
