NORTH LAKES FOOD BANK

NORTH LAKES FOOD BANK

The foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. Local professional care-workers within Allerdale and Copeland refer them, with a food voucher, to the foodbank centre where they are given their food supplies, a cup of coffee and help in finding other professionals who can help them out of their crisis. In rural areas they are given Emergency Food Boxes direct by the local care-workers.

The foodbank allows the general public to contribute to and support local well-being in a simple practical way. Emergency Food Supplies are a short-term measure allowing a breathing space at times of great need. For further details of the work of the foodbank and how you can be involved contact: info@thefoodbank.org.uk
