Helping with the cost of raising a child

The Lincoln Community Larder is quickly running out of food and would appreciate any help you can provide.
It has always been the Larder’s practice to purchase food when they are running out, however as they are now buying food on a weekly basis, the Larder is appealing for food donations, as the current level of spending is unsustainable.”
The Larder has noticed a drop in donations of food, beginning over last Harvest Festival, and since then, the regular ongoing donations have also dropped significantly.
Since the demise of LCAS (Lincolnshire Community Assistance Scheme), income from that source has completely ceased.
As a result of the food shortage, there have been some cuts to the food parcels, however, at this moment in time, these have been nothing drastic.
The Larder have asked if this message can be shared amongst the community to encourage as many people as possible to donate food and support with fund raising.
If you can provide any help at all, please contact Tina James (Larder Co-ordinator) on 07914 655460 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2016 Lincoln Community Larder fed 2,501 people, which was a 14% rise on the previous year (2501 people equates to 22,509 meals). In 2017 the Larder is already 17% up on the same period in 2016 last year.
