School Lunch Project - Carlisle

The School Lunch Project is a joint initiative between Carlisle Community Help, Carlisle Youth Zone, Family Action and other Agencies. The aim is that through collaboration we are meeting the food and resource needs of children and families of Carlisle throughout the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Any child who’s family is going through difficulties as a result of COVID-19 can be referred. Also including age appropriate activity packs and books as part of this service.

Parcels will be delivered by a Carlisle Youth Zone volunteers daily. 

Parent’s/carers requiring this service should contact; head@greatorton.cumbria.sch.uk in the first instance so we can submit an application on your behalf.
