FareShare asks for volunteers to collect food this Christmas

14th Oct 2021 - 05:00
Volunteers are needed to help collect food for FareShare and the Trussell Trust during this year’s Tesco Food Collection, taking place in every store in the UK from 18 to 20 November.

Tesco will be topping up the donations made during the collection with a 20% cash donation to help the charities in their work.

Lindsay Boswell, chief executive at FareShare, said: “We would be hugely grateful to anyone who is able to volunteer at the Tesco Food Collection this year to encourage more shoppers to donate much-needed food to FareShare, so we can continue to support those who need it most.”

To date Tesco customers have donated more than 40 million meals to help vulnerable families.

Emma Revie, chief executive of the Trussell Trust, added: “Christmas can be an extremely difficult time for many people but especially for families facing crisis. We know that too many people will be forced to use a food bank over the festive period because they are unable to afford the essentials.

“Supporting the Tesco Food Collection this November by volunteering could make all the difference to your local food bank during this busy period.”
