This summer North lakes foodbank will once again be able to provide the Lunchpacks 4 Kids scheme for infant/junior school children who are on free school meals (low income) but have also secured funding from Copeland BC to run a scheme for families with secondary school children on Free school meals.
We’re calling it ‘Summer food packs – a helping hand’ and it is open to families with secondary age children aged 11-16 (yrs 7 to 11). We’ve written to the schools who in turn will contact the relevant families. Each bag has about 9-10kg food – things like pasta, pasta sauce, tinned fruit, beans, meat, fish, rice pudding, box of cereal etc.
For more info please visit the website There will be a bag for each week of the holidays.
