Lincoln Community Larder

Helping local people in crisis

The Lincoln Community Larder is a registered charity which aims to relieve poverty in the Lincoln area through the provision of basic nutritious food and other basic amenities to those in need of short term help. We also support those suffering from illness or special needs.

We issue Larder Vouchers to a variety of agencies in the area who then refer people to us in need of assistance and we give 3 days’ worth of food for each person included on the voucher.

Our news

Thank you for new computer!

We’d like to say a big thank you to the incredibly kind folks at CSG Cleaning Specialist Group, who have paid for an “all in one” HP computer for us.

They have donated to the larder before now and we are extremely grateful for their support. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************

Thank you for your donations in 2019

We’ve received some incredible donations and support in 2019.

Some people make donations anonymously and some we may not have thanked, even though we try to thank people personally if we can.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the overwhelming support of kind local people, for food and cash donations in 2019. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************

Lincoln Community Larder’s 30th Anniversary

The 30th Anniversary tea party on 18th August saw a gathering of over 50 volunteers and associates who have supported local people in crisis in one way or another over the years.

Lincoln Community Larder Chairman, Alan Wilson, thanked all those present and acknowledged the very enthusiastic and committed group of volunteers who freely give their time and, quite often, money to support those in need.

Whether behind-the-scenes, collecting and sorting food, maintaining the warehouse, running and administering the charity – or working on the front line at the 3 distribution centres, he said that all were unpaid volunteers who cared deeply for the community and the people they were serving.

Alan also expressed grateful thanks to Nick Peel of Stokes, who kindly sponsored the refreshments, cakes and scones for the party, and Caroline Killeavy for providing the YMCA Showroom for our event.

The photograph shows the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Sue Burke and the civic party with 11 year old Harry McCracken who decided to cycle to Boston and back in order to raise £280 which he used to purchase food from a list on our website – that’s 75 miles – a fantastic achievement!

30 for 30

In this 30th anniversary year, the Larder is welcoming donations from 30p to £30 to help pay for food parcels for people in crisis.

As donations are received, they will be filling the empty bags below. £30 pays for two food parcels, which feeds two adults for three days.

Financial donations help us to supplement donated food to ensure we provide full and nutritionally balanced parcels to those in need.

If you would like to donate, it can be done online by visiting Local Giving or Just Giving. Please remember to Gift Aid your donation.

We’re always happy to accept money, cheques, notes – even bags of coins regularly come our way.
