Morecambe Bay Food Bank provides three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
Eggcup is not a foodbank. They charge a weekly membership subscription and it’s currently £5 per week. Typically members get a carrier bag of mixed fruit and vegetables, some store cupboard items like pasta sauce, biscuits, and beans, and fresh items such as meat, sausages, cheese or ready meals. This is in order to prevent food going to landfill as waste.
At The Olive Branch you receive a warm welcome from one of the team with a cup of tea/coffee and a piece of cake and take time to talk with you about your situation and how they can best help you.
While you do need a referral to receive a food parcel, please note that you can just drop in for their other services.
