A Norwich-based project which helps people who have been homeless has registered itself as a charity.

The Feed Foundation teaches people skills required to work in the food and retail industries, and will initially fund places on The Feed Academy training programmes.

It is also working with partners in the food industry and local government on other longer term projects to help homeless people in Norwich.

The Feed, which works in partnership with Kettle Foods, has been running for four years and in addition its market stall also runs a catering business providing corporate lunches and other catering services.

All profits from The Feed’s social enterprise activities, including the stall in Norwich market, will now be gifted to the charity called The Feed Foundation.

It will be officially launched in May, and is now accepting donations to support the training programme.
