Make a Financial Donation
We give food to people in crisis free of charge. However the warehousing and distribution costs us money.
So in order to give food away free we do need financial help.
Thank you for your support.
Tesco and Asda Donation Points
Tesco and Asda Donation Points are intended for food that has been purchased in-store. Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into the store should be sealed by the donor and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.
The Foodbank relies on a network of voucher holders to refer people using a food voucher to the Foodbank centre where people receive food. These include:
housing support teams
children's support teams
debt advisory teams
welfare advisory teams
charity and community support teams
other community based support worker
If you work in a similar field and your organisation would like to hold some vouchers to give out to people in need please contact Adrian at the North Lakes Foodbank at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting to discuss becoming a voucher holder with us.
