The King’s Lynn Foodbank is to hold its second Big Supper Week.

The initiative, which will run from November 12 to 18, calls on people to invite their friends or work colleagues for a meal.

“It’s a simple concept. It could be an elaborate dinner party or a simple lunch – it doesn’t matter.

“But the idea is that people make a donation for the food they’ve eaten, which goes towards the work of the food bank,” explained Andy King, a trustee for the food bank.

Last year, various events raised more than £2,500 for the food bank which fed around 4,000 people in the last 12 months.

Mr King added: “I’ve already started to hear about events that are being held across the town, but also further afield in Norwich, Cambridge and Essex.

“We’re so grateful to the support of the public over the last  seven years – we’ve fed far more people than we ever thought we would and we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of the community.”

The  food bank is looking for people to host Big Supper Week events as individuals, schools, churches, businesses and restaurants.

Although the event is called the Big Supper Week, events could be any size, held at any time of the day and could be held at any time between now and Christmas.

Anyone interested in hosting an event is asked to contact andy@kingslynn.foodbank.org.uk
