Feeding Vulnerable People in Welton

We’ve recently reported on developments in feeding vulnerable people in rural Lincolnshire: the New Life Community Larder in Sleaford; the Community Larder in Horncastle; St George’s C of E Community Primary School in Gainsborough, Washingborough Academy’s distribution project; and the ChEF (Children Eat Free) Project in Wragby.

The County rural food network has further expanded to Welton, where the Lincoln Community Larder has opened its fourth delivery site at St Mary’s Church.

From here, the Larder is providing basic needs for those who are Covid-vulnerable, recognising how difficult it can be for anyone who is sick and those with special needs in rural areas to gain access basic provisions and wholesome food.

The demand for their food parcels is soaring.

The Lincoln Community Larder is run entirely by volunteers, and operates three other sites at Rosemary Lane, St Giles Methodist Church and St John the Baptist, all in Lincoln. And volunteers, of course, can always do with support.

You can drop off food at St Mary’s Church Welton on Thursdays 1.30-3pm, or donate money here.

You can also contact the Larder at lincolncommunitylarder@hotmail.co.uk.

Details of more food donation drop off points here.
