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 work with a variety of local front-line agencies who refer people to us in need of assistance. We give 3 days’ worth of food for each person referred to us.

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.

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.

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.
