Free food sessions to help West Norfolk residents trying to make ends meet, due to the increasing cost of living, are to return to South Lynn on Wednesday 3 April 2024.

Lily, a service that is owned and managed by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, is organising another interactive Food for Thought Bite Size pop-up session to be held at Purfleet Pantry, Southgates Roundabout, King’s Lynn, PE30 5SX in partnership with the Purfleet Trust.

Cllr Jo Rust, Cabinet member for people and communities at the borough council, said:

“Previous sessions held elsewhere in South Lynn have proved popular. I’m pleased that we can bring it back to an area where it has already been well received and am grateful for the support the Purfleet Trust are giving this event.

“The increasing cost of living continues to affect all of us and these free-to-attend sessions mean that people can drop-in to them and pick up helpful saving tips about how to cook healthy and tasty food without breaking the bank. It's also a great way to meet new people and make friends.

"I know many residents in Downham Market, Hunstanton, North Lynn, South Lynn, Gaywood and the centre of King’s Lynn have appreciated these Food for Thought visits and I want to see them continue to help as many of our West Norfolk residents as possible.”

Norma’s kitchen will be running the session with themed cooking demonstrations and tips to cut costs this Easter. There will be activities for young pre-school children and refreshments available.

People can drop in any time between 10am and 11am on Wednesday 3 April 2024. For more information on this session please either email or telephone Lily on 01553 616200.
