Contact them to find out how to get support
Some foodbanks will give food to anyone who needs it, during their opening hours – you just have to ask.
Some foodbanks need an agency to refer you (e.g. a key worker, GP or Citizens Advice Bureau).
If you need support and are not working with any support agency, contact your local foodbank to find out how to get a referral. For example, in Lincoln anyone can contact the City Council welfare helpline: 01522 873382
Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you are struggling to put decent, healthy food on the table.
During the Covid pandemic, some foodbanks do things differently to normal, for example they might offer delivery or ask you to come at a certain time.
Foodbanks are all a bit different, and are often run by volunteers.
Some of the organisations on the map are not foodbanks at all, but another sort of organisation that might be good to know about.
If you can’t find what you need, or if you are aware of a foodbank that is not listed here, please contact Ticky@LincolnshireFoodPartnership.org
If you need help with accessing food but you’re not working with an agency who can provide a referral, contact Lincoln City Council welfare helpline: 01522 873382

Ways to support your local foodbank
You can donate money.
Most foodbanks welcome financial donations, as it gives them the flexibility to buy provisions as and when they are needed, and to cover other running costs.
Please contact your local foodbank to find out how to donate.
For example, you can donate to Lincoln Community Larder via the Just Giving website.
Most foodbanks welcome volunteers, and have a variety of roles, including:
- Fund-raisers, to collect donations in areas of high footfall, such as outside a supermarket, or organise fund-raising events.
- Drivers, to collect and delivery food as needed, possibly driving a van or freezer-vehicle.
- Storeroom assistants, to sort deliveries and prepare food parcels.
You can help by donating food items with a long shelf life, such as rice, UHT milk, tinned vegetables, pasta sauce, etc.
Many foodbanks welcome fresh items, but please check first.
Food drop off points include Lincolnshire Co-op stores and your local foodbank/larder during their opening times, or by arrangement.
