Easter Egg Hunt

Without all of the items on our shopping list, we cannot offer nutritionally balanced food parcels, when we get dips in some of our stock we have to appeal for certain items.

Our Appeal this week 27th March 2015:

UHT Milk (not skimmed), Coffee 100g and 200g

UHT Fruit Juice 1 ltr (not squash please)


We are feeding around 600 people in short term crisis every month within Allerdale and Copeland. Thank you for your support.

 The North Lakes Foodbank Centres Normal Opening times

You will need an orange voucher from a Foodbank voucher holder to receive food, bring it to us during these times and exchange it. If you are in need of food and do not have a care professional working alongside yourself who holds our vouchers, contact us for signposting to one of our voucher holders within Allerdale and Copeland.

 We have many collection points around Allerdale and Copeland, including most churches - some of which have appeal bins. Many businesses, schools and charities also carry one of collections for us.  If you would like a collection point, please download a poster here.
