WE ARE CURRENTLY VERY LOW ON ALL ITEMS.  OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS, WE HAVE HAD MORE STOCK GIVEN OUT THAN HAS BEEN DONATED.  WE WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD PUT AN EXTRA FOOD ITEM IN WITH YOUR DONATION.

Our SOS Appeal is for all items on our shopping list which can be found in the shopping list section of the menu.

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.

*Newsflash*

5675 people

- 3860 adults and 1815 children;

The number of emergency food supplies given to people in Allerdale and Copeland between April 2015 and March 2016. With your help we have been donated 60 tonnes of food which has enabled us to help people in short term crisis, in our community.

The people we help could be struggling in many different ways, such as low income, benefit delay/change, debt, sickness and homelessness, to name just a few.

We have also given to 138 families who are experiencing very low income. With the support of Sellafield, CN Papers, local schools, and the generosity of the community, we have helped by giving out 'Holiday Lunchpacks 4 Kids' over the Summer, Christmas and Easter holiday period within Allerdale and Copeland.  

As a christian charity we are grateful to be able to show the values of Love, Compassion and Hope by helping people in this very basic way by giving food.

Thank you for your continued support.
