Children’s Lunch Provision

The Upper Eden Food Bank want you to know that we are here to help if you are having difficulty at this time because of a change in your financial circumstances, or you are receiving vouchers and are having issues with the system or it is simply becoming difficult providing extra food for your children while they are at home and not able to have a school lunch.

Following discussion with the local schools we have arranged to provide a bag of food for a quick lunch, per child, per week, wherever it is needed. We will offer this service until the children return to school in the Autumn.

An example of 1 bag would be; a tin of beans, tin of spaghetti, tinned/ packet soup, tinned tuna, tinned meat, fruit juice/ squash, biscuits or tinned pudding and a loaf of bread, and some milk.  (depending what foods we have available each week).   The food bank would need to be made aware of any allergies or intolerances at the point of request.

Requests can come directly to the food bank phone  07596 690 902 , 9am to 5pm Monday to Thursday   but must be before 5pm on Thursday of any week,  for delivery the following Monday.
