Mission Statement

The Kings Lynn Foodbank is a charity founded on Christian principles. We work with people of all faiths and none, but are inspired to do what we do by Jesus' words:

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Matthew 25:35-36
