£1.4m in National Lottery funding will support communities in Lancaster to tackle climate change

The funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, will be used by Lancaster District CIC (LESS) and Lancaster District Community and Voluntary Solutions (LDCVS) to create a circular and regenerative food economy for the local community.

The partnership hopes to transform the local food distribution network across the district, encouraging people to intercept food waste from supermarkets by taking advantage of surplus food spaces, as well as creating a compost academy.
