The Carlisle Foodbank was established in 2012
in partnership with a number of agencies in Carlisle.

Service users are referred to the Foodbank from a variety of sources,
for example, Citizens Advice Bureau, Law Centre, Barnardo’s, housing charities,
mental health and substance abuse charities.  They are people who have been
identified as having no money and no food.

The Foodbank’s aim is to provide three days’ emergency food aid for people in crisis
who have been identified and referred by agencies working in the community,
to work with these referral agencies to signpost service users to other agencies
appropriate for their needs and to provide a listening ear
for service users where appropriate.

Because of the rising costs of food and fuel, combined with static income,
high unemployment and changes to benefits, there is an
increasing number of people in the Carlisle district
who are going without food.

Items which the Foodbank are pleased to receive from donors
and may be given through the Church include the following:

Milk (UHT or powdered)
Sugar (500g)
Fruit juice (carton)
Pasta sauces (tin, jar or packet)
Sponge pudding (tinned)
Custard (tinned or packet instant)
Tomatoes (tinned)
Rice pudding (tinned)

Instant mashed potato
Tinned meat/fish
Tinned fruit/vegetables
Tinned baked beans/spaghetti/ravioli
