Carlisle Community Help has set up a network of hubs across the city to address the needs of affordable food in Carlisle.
You can choose from a list of items from our stocks but only pay a low set price each week. Availability will differ depending on donations or our ability to purchase stock, and we will top up your shop with donated surplus food.
We have built up relationships with local producers, who will be able to supply reduced priced locally made food to offer for sale. We think it is vital for both the local economy and our climate to keep food as local as possible.
