Spalding Guardian supports Holbeach Community Larder as part of Christmas Foodbank Appeal
Holbeach Community Larder is much more than just a foodbank for people struggling to afford the costs of living.
From an idea first put forward by the Rev Rosamund Seal very soon after she became vicar of Holbeach in January 2013, what was first thought of as a centre to collect and give out emergency food parcels has become what Mrs Seal called "a part of the community".
Not only does it serve Friday lunches to people who live alone, have no cooking facilities or are waiting for their benefits to come through, it also gives advice on where individuals and families can get longer-term help to improve their lives.
