What is it?

The Kirkby Lonsdale Community Cupboard aims to alleviate food poverty, period poverty and reduce food waste. We provide basic ambient food and household goods on a weekly, monthly or infrequent basis, with complete confidentiality and respect.

Who is it for?

The Community Cupboard exists to help those in Kirkby Lonsdale and the surrounding areas who are experiencing the negative effects of rising living costs. We understand that food poverty affects people in different ways, including those looking for work, in full time work, with extra mouths to feed, facing legal costs, or a variety of different reasons. We are here to lend a hand for as long as you need us, without judgement.
