In 2010 following the floods in Cockermouth the North Lakes Foodbank was formed. It now operates across West Cumbria helping local people. tye foodbank gives nutritionally balanced food and support to people experiencing emotional or financial crisis. It is part of the Foodbank network which is mobilising communities across the UK to meet the needs of their neighbours by setting up a Foodbank in their own town.
Here at New Life Church we’ve been a part of this organisation since 2011, bringing the foodbank to people in need in and around Whitehaven. We operate a food collection and distribution centre for local people in financial crisis. The foodbank is open Monday to Thursday between 11.30 and 1.30 each day.
If you’re in need of help in this way please contact the foodbank here.
