The festive season can be a difficult and lonely time for many. Often it can be a struggle, with costs of energy and food forever on the increase.
If, as a result of a crisis, you are unable to feed yourself or your family, you may be able to get some emergency food from a food bank. In order to do so, you will need first to obtain a voucher from one of the food bank’s authorised voucher holders once they have established that this is appropriate in your particular circumstances.
Staff in People First are actively supporting the Food Bank service and People First Cumbria have offices in Carlisle, Workington and Barrow in Furness – so we are never far away! We are collecting donations for the Food Bank in each of our offices and if anyone wishes to contribute, please contact us for more information or drop into one of our offices.
