The Lord's Larder Food Bank is a local 'bank' of non-perishable food operated by volunteers from churches in and around Yeovil. It began in a small way in 1991 when a representative of Yeovil Citizens' Advice Bureau spoke about the need for emergency food to a member of one of the churches in Yeovil. It is now supplied by over 20 local churches, 20 schools and several community groups.

Between 1996 and 2006, there was a five-fold increase in supply and demand for the project. In 2007, over 25,000 items of food were given out via different agencies.

How the Larder Works:

• Food and money are donated throughout the year by local churches, businesses, schools and charities.

• Volunteers sort & store all donations of food in a purpose built larder.

• Requests for food are made by phone through recognised agencies, who then collect parcels to hand on to their clients.

• Emergency food parcels are made up by the volunteers, according to need.

A basket is kept in the church for regular weekly donations, but special appeals are made for Harvest, Christmas and Homelessness Sunday
