Norwich FoodHub, a not for profit social enterprise which redistributes food waste from supermarkets to those living in food poverty, plans to expand.

The team are crowdfunding £3,000 to enable them to make improvements to their current base at Monastery Court Car Park.

They say it would involve making improvements to the structure by fixing the doors so it can be used for the safe storage of food.

They would also buy some extra fixtures and fittings to make the space lighter and safer, as well as some equipment to help with their day to day efforts.

Since May 2016 the volunteers have collected more than nine tonnes of food that would otherwise have gone to waste, including enough fruit and veg for 30 people to have received their 5-a-day, every day, since they began. To donate visit
