Invitation to apply for Grants:

They would like to invite groups and organisations in Lincolnshire who support people in food need to apply for grants of up to £5000 to support them in their work. The aim of this Grant Programme is to ensure that vulnerable people within Lincolnshire have improved access to food and are not adversely affected by isolating from the broader community due to health-related vulnerabilities during the 2020 Covid-19 global pandemic. They appreciate that there may be some groups who have a responsibility for more than one food bank or larder, in these circumstances we are happy to accept applications on behalf of each of the food banks/larders in the group. They recognise that each food bank or larder will be serving a slightly different community and so may well have different requirements which would be served by this grant funding in helping them in their work with their communities.
