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 can change our mindset and language to be more positive, empowering and inclusive.

If your organisation supports our aims, you might like to join us as Food Partners.

Food Partners are committed to working together towards fairer, greener, healthier food for all.

We’ve mapped foodbanks, community larders and affordable cafes across Greater 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!
