Eggcup is a new not-for-profit organisation focused on food poverty and community building.

Our mission is to establish a surplus food depot to ensure that good food reaches people who need it within the Lancaster City Council district. We will support existing food clubs and other food projects, and will stimulate and support the growth of a bigger network of community food clubs. We will market food clubs to people in need to ensure that the benefits of food clubs are open to the people in most need. We know that about 8000 people within the city council district are in receipt of Universal Credit, many are in receipt of Pension Credit, and others are not receiving the benefits to which they are entitled. Food clubs are for everyone, but to serve their social purpose they must provide for the people in most need because people have a right to food.
