About The Feed
The Feed is a social enterprise catering business and café in Norwich. We provide great food and 100% of our profits go to charity. We help people who have experienced homelessness, helping people access long term housing, training and employment.
In March 2014, we were created by the LEAP project in Norwich and were registered as a Community Interest Company to combine business with doing good, changing the perception of homelessness across the public and private sectors.
The Feed was born, a catering enterprise designed to grow as a business and have a positive impact on the clients accessing our services. The new enterprise gained backing and funding support from the Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner and later the New Anglia LEP. We continue to be supported by Norwich City Council and are grateful to the Big Lottery who supported Leap for six years as part of St Martins Housing Trust.
Since 2017 The Feed has had a partnership with Kettle Foods. The Kettle® partnership is amazing, they help fund The Feed Academy and help us make a real difference – from offering work experience, to providing training sessions with their Chef, Phil, and helping raise awareness of The Feed’s valuable work to a wider audience.
Kettle Foods are a major employer in Norwich, where their factory is based. They also are one of the UK’s best known snack brands – we love their chips and we love working with them.
You will see The Feed regularly out and about with Kettle Foods at events around Norfolk.
