Food donations are being sought for the Sleaford's New Life Community Larder which is expecting to provide over 9000 meals to the people of Sleaford and North Kesteven this year.
Sleaford's independent food bank was initiated by Rod & Annie Munro in 2008 with the support of local churches and schools. The Larder celebrates its 5th birthday today at 10.30am with a harvest festival service.

We know that there are families and individuals out there who are already stretched and it only takes one thing to tip them into crisis.
"People assume a lot of things about food banks but they are there to provide short-term help to those who need them.
"For example, if someone loses their job and faces a period of time before they receive benefits or who cannot work due to sickness and has no money coming in
"The aim of the food bank is to give three days' supply of food to help a family or individual over a crisis."
The charity said the dramatic increase in the use of its food banks was set to continue as poorer families struggled to cope financially in the wake of welfare reforms. Over 950 and adults and children have been supported so far locally equating to a 90% increase on last year.

We're seeing more people experiencing food poverty, and the current austerity measures means that people have fewer options than in the past. Life is very tough for some and is getting tougher all the time.
"Since April, many people referred to us report that they are struggling to live on the money they have and it's getting worse due to the changes in the welfare system
"We don't want people to think families who use a food bank are scroungers. Some people are living on such a small amount of money and it is not just those on benefits. Families on low wages are also really feeling the pinch."
The final stage of a three million pound refurbishment of Sleaford Leisure Centre is being completed. Once the swimming pool has been filled the centre will re-open to the public after being closed for a year.
