Launched in June 2023, Kinder Kind of Kitchens is a community initiative by The Cumberland in partnership with FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria. Because when times get tough, this is a kinder kind of place.
We’re donating £250,000 to FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria to offer funding to every one of FareShare’s Community Food Members in Cumbria, and some in Lancashire. This will help serve hot meals and provide food to people in the region who are experiencing food poverty.
This year, our pledge for votes fund will also support FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria. We will donate a fund to provide fridges, freezers and chiller cabinets to members who need them.
FareShare supports Community Food Members (CFMs). This can include kitchens serving hot food, foodbanks, community supermarkets, breakfast clubs, and more. They get a range of fresh, frozen, ambient and chilled produce during weekly deliveries to distribute to people in need.
FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria already operate in the area, so our donation will help deliver, enhance and expand this important work. The donation will allow CFMs to invest in more food or expand their provision for our communities.
