Housing association Boston Mayflower has awarded £500 to a busy food bank based at the town’s St Christopher’s Church.
The money, part of the housing association’s Community Champions Awards scheme, will be used to buy food for those in need.
Ian Evans, project manager for the Boston Food Bank, said: “We are all volunteers here so every penny of Mayflower’s award will be used to buy food to add to the food bank.
“Our client base has gone up 150 per cent in the last couple of months – we are seeing treble the amount of people coming in and donations of food soon go off the shelf.
“Some large families come to us and we run out of many tinned items very quickly. We are always looking for more volunteers to help us.”
