Vouchers

The Lincoln Community Larder uses a voucher referral system.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.

When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.

Once you have been issued with a voucher, you can exchange this for three days worth of emergency food at your nearest Lincoln Community Larder distribution site.
