TESCO FOOD COLLECTION 2019

CAN YOU GIVE JUST 3 HOURS TO COLLECT ENOUGH FOOD FOR 600 MEALS?

HELP SUPPORT OUR WORK BY VOLUNTEERING AT THE UK’S LARGEST FOOD DRIVE

At FareShare we help over 10,943 charities make 46.5 million meals a year by saving over 20,838 tonnes of good quality surplus food from the food industry.
The Tesco Food Collection is a vital source of longer-life items such as rice, pasta and tinned goods, so your support is invaluable.
This is where you can step in and become a Christmas hero!

Please join us on Thursday 21st November, Friday 22nd November and Saturday 23rd November.

We only need three hours of your time, 9-12pm, 12-3pm, 3-6pm or 6-9pm.
You will simply be in store, handing out shopping lists of preferred goods to encourage shoppers to donate those items; a quick and easy way to make a huge difference to the lives of vulnerable people.

FareShare is the only charity to take food from the wholesale level of the food industry

The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
