Here at the North Lakes Foodbank we provide 3 days worth of emergency food supplies to people in need in the Allerdale and Copeland areas of Cumbria. We have been doing this for over 10 years!

Last year (the 12 months to 30th Nov 2019) we helped over 6,150 people, including almost 1950 children. 
We also gave 14 tonnes of food to children as part of our Holiday LunchPacks 4 Kids scheme.
