Lancaster District
Emergency Food Team


This is the official emergency food response site for Coronavirus in Lancaster District, run by Lancaster City Council and the Morecambe Bay Foodbank. You can use this site to refer someone for emergency food, and if you need help, you can find the contact details of people and organisations who can refer you.

Do You Need Help?

If you are struggling to access food you need to get an online referral from one of our agencies. Click on the 'Our Agencies' page of this site and contact one of the organisations and individuals who can talk to you, find out more about your circumstances, and refer you to us for an emergency food parcel which will be delivered to your home.

Register As An Agency

If you are a charity, school, church, councillor, health organisation or anyone else who thinks that they could refer vulnerable clients for help with food, you need to email your name, organisation, mobile number and email address to the link below. We will then send you instructions and a password for this website so that you can refer clients for emergency food.

Refer someone for food

To refer someone for a food parcel, log in using the password that we have sent you, and you can fill out the form. We will then check the data and aim to send a food parcel to the recipient within 48 hours.
