In April we opened our fifth Distribution Centre, which is located in North Hykeham. When we mapped out what areas of the city Lincoln Foodbank were reaching and how far guest’s were having to travel to collect a food parcel, we decided we needed to plant another Distribution centre in the South of the city to make it as easy as possible for guests to access a food parcel. There are three churches partnering together with a group of volunteers to help run the Distribution centre. Our team leaders Mel and Sheila have done a brilliant job in helping set up the centre and making sure everything runs smoothly.
