Argos team helps with Lunchpacks 4 Kids Scheme
Updated: Jun 5, 2019
Staff from Argos in Whitehaven have been helping over two days to pack the bags of food we need for hour Lunchpacks 4 Kids scheme. A total of nearly 500 bags were completed (that's 3 tonnes of food!)
Each bag contains enough food for 2 children for 5 lunches. Over the summer we expect to give away in excess of 1200 of these bags supporting over 300 children who receive free school meals (of primary and junior school age) who's families would struggle to afford lunches through the long summer holiday.
NLFB will be running this scheme for all school children (Year 6 and below) throughout the schools in Allerdale and Copeland over rhe summer holidays.
