Wednesday 1st November saw the official opening of Wymondham’s Community Food Shop. The Shop, run by Hub Community Project, provides free and discounted food to anyone in need in the community.

The shop was formally opened by Suzanne Nuri-Nixon, the Mayor of Wymondham, and amongst those attending were representatives from:

The shop is one of 25 food hubs in Norfolk operating under the banner of Nourishing Norfolk and is open 9.15 – 10.45 am on Tuesdays and 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm on Thursdays. There is plenty of free parking at the site on Ayton Road, Wymondham, NR18 0QJ (next to Wymondham Furniture Warehouse).

Shoppers have access to free fruit, vegetables, bread, items for babies and ladies’ sanitary items. All other food (chilled, frozen and shelf life) is 50% cheaper than average supermarket prices which enables families to stretch their budgets. Cash and card payments are accepted.

On Tuesday mornings there is a warm space for shoppers to have free coffee & pastries, chat to friends and access further help from the friendly team of volunteers.

For those shoppers joining as members there are additional benefits including free birthday cakes for children, priority consideration for a free Christmas lunch hamper & free Christmas toys, access to grant funding (subject to availability and qualifying conditions).
