Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

The North Lakes Foodbank is a community-based project providing food for people in crisis throughout Allerdale and Copeland. It was seeded by the Trussell Trust, a Christian based organisation, committed to launching life changing community-based projects.

Please donate to support our cause.

The North Lakes Foodbank helps individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. All food is given to people who are experiencing crisis identified by care professionals – advisory services for welfare and debt, medical teams, social workers, housing floating support teams, childrens support teams, church and community/charity workers. We have more than 100 of these care professionals who are voucher holders for us. They give out vouchers which are exchanged for the food which is nutritionally balanced to last
the individual, couple or family 3 days. The amount of people through out Allerdale and Copeland we are feeding each month is growing rapidly,
over 100% rise year on year since we opened in 2009. Some of the needs are as a result of
benefit delay, low income, ill health, homelessness, sickness and housing issues. Your donation will help us to help local people who find themselves without food to eat.
