Foodbank Message

  • 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.


The Foodbank are happy for you to contact them direct on 07502311452
