Our Story

The Lincoln Community Larder was one of the first foodbanks in the area, opening its doors on 18 August 1989.

Mary Eckmyre

The Larder was the creation of Mrs Mary Eckmyre who became aware of the need for a stock of basic food, available at short notice to give to people suffering some form of crisis in their life making them unable to fend for themselves. Once up and running, the demand for Lincoln Community Larder’s services soon increased as word spread.

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are a local charity, run by volunteers, working to combat poverty and hunger in the Lincoln area.

The larder was Winner of the Lincolnshire Community Group of the Year Award 2010.
