If your organisation supports our aims, you might like to join us as a Food Partner. Food Partners are committed to working together towards fairer, greener, healthier food for all. There is no cost to being a Food Partner.

To enquire about becoming a Food Partner, please email Laura@lincolnshirefoodpartnership.org

The Lincolnshire Food Partnership is what is termed a Constituted Unincorporated Community Association which means that we do have a constitution but we do not have a legal status. 

We’ve mapped foodbanks, community larders and affordable cafes across Lincolnshire.

Find your nearest foodbank to request help for yourself or someone in your community, volunteer your time, or make a donation.

Get involved in a community garden in your area, or if there’s not much going on where you live – start something delicious!

Everyone is welcome – if you eat, you’re in!
