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. Run entirely by local volunteers, 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.

If you would like to help by making a financial donation during the lockdown period, you can send a cheque payable to "Lincoln Community Larder" to our Rosemary Lane site or you can donate on-line - this can be done easily by visiting "Local Giving":or "Just Giving": Please remember to Gift Aid your donation.

Half term help for children in need

Families struggling at home without free school meals in Lincolnshire are encouraged to visit Lincoln food banks where they will be provided with food parcels.

The Lincoln Community Larder is involved with the initiative, launched by the Lincoln Food Bank to provide food for families in need.

All of Lincoln Community Larder outreach centres will provide families with a food parcel if it’s needed, all you have to do is ask for ‘half term help’.

Our outreach centres and open times are outlined below.

The Lincoln Community Larder is completely volunteer run and all of our trustees, operational and food distribution staff are volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure there is a constant stock of supplies throughout the year to meet the needs of those in crisis in our community. Learn how you can support us here.

We are open during the Covid 19 pandemic

Getting Help

If you are in need of a food parcel, you should contact one of our referring agencies for a voucher.

Alternatively, please call 01522 873382 or email

This new service aims to help connect you to your nearest food bank, or arrange for help for those who would normally need a foodbank service but are self-isolating during the Coronavirus pandemic. Vouchers are issued digitally to ensure you can get to an outreach centre without delay.

Our volunteers are taking careful measures to ensure that people visiting our outreach centres are kept safe. Please note that the safety of our volunteers and visitors to the larder at this time is crucial, so for this reason we are not taking on any more volunteers at the moment.

We are in urgent need of the following items…

Please help us by donating some of these foods if you can.

If it’s just a small donation, please deliver to the Rosemary Lane site on Tuesday or Friday afternoon, between 13:30 and 15:00. Or you can drop off food in the ‘Lincoln Community Larder’ boxes at most Co-op’s in Lincoln or at North Hykeham Asda.
