- If your family is in financial crisis and cannot afford food, you can obtain an orange foodbank voucher from a number of agencies – Health Visitors, midwives, Social care, Some GP surgeries, housing associations, Allerdale and Copeland housing. Foodbank staff can also signpost families to suitable support
- When a voucher has been issued, you can take it to one of the Foodbank Centres and redeem it for a food parcel suitable for your circumstances, which will last around 3 days. Families can have up to 3 vouchers in any one crisis, thus feeding you for 9-10 days. In extenuating circumstances this can be extended.
