We are a partnership of organisations across Greater Lincolnshire, working together for greener, fairer and healthier food for all, through sustainable local action.
As a partnership organisation, the LFP does not develop projects in an executive, singular way.
Rather we seek to bring groups of people together with a common purpose, to achieve more than we might have done individually.
Our role is thus supportive, catalytic and contributory, seeking to make a more integrated local food system, consistent with our mission and aims.
We believe that everyone should have access to healthy, sustainable food, and no-one should have to rely on charity for the basics.
We work and campaign for good food for all, and at the same time stand with those in our communities who are facing hardship.
Use our online map to find your nearest foodbank, community larder, affordable cafe, membership supermarket or homeless outreach.
Urban food growing galvanises community, develops skills and local resilience, improves health and wellbeing, and provides fresh food with minimal transport and emissions.
There are all sorts of way to get involved with growing food in your local community, from school growing projects and community gardens and orchards, to horticultural societies, Community Supported Agriculture and Care Farms.

- Three High Street BakersMost of us in Lincolnshire, most of the time, consume uniform baked products, produced on an industrial scale by workers we will never meet.

Katarzyna – SuperLincs Katarzyna is the head baker at SuperLincs on High Street, leading a team of four bakers – two bread bakers who work through the night, and two cake bakers who work […]
- Fringe FarmingFor fruit and vegetable crops – I’m talking the 7-a-day stuff that most of us need way more of in our diets – it’s a completely different story. Just a few acres, with polytunnels or glasshouses require constant tending, and can employ numerous people doing skilled, interesting, rewarding, socially useful jobs. Fruit and vegetables don’t necessarily need much processing before they reach our plates. We want to eat them fresh – the fresher the better! It would make sense, then, that the most labour intensive, perishable, unprocessed foods are grown in close proximity to urban areas.
- We Won Bronze!Greater Lincolnshire has become the latest place to win a prestigious Sustainable Food Places award. The award recognises Greater Lincolnshire Food Partnership’s work to promote healthy, sustainable and local food and to tackle some of today’s greatest social challenges, from food poverty and diet-related ill-health to the disappearance of family farms and the loss of independent food retailers. Food Partners across the whole of Greater Lincolnshire are working towards fairer, greener, healthier food for all, in a myriad of different ways: For example, across the county – from Ropsley Market Garden CSA near Grantham to Willoughby Road Allotments Association in […]
