Let’s be heroes against UK hunger
Volunteer to fight hunger Thursday 1, Friday 2 and Saturday 3 December
This December join Team FareShare at the nation’s biggest food drive to help fight hunger in the UK. You don’t need super powers to be a hero against hunger, you just need to give three hours of your time. In a morning or afternoon you could collect enough tins, cans and store-cupboard staples for five hundred meals for people in need. Kapow!
What you’ll be doing
By collecting donations from shoppers at your local Tesco store, you will be part of a nationwide team of heroes fighting hunger from Lands End to John O’Groats. Together we can make a big difference to some of the 8.4 million people struggling to afford to eat in the UK this winter.
Who you’ll be helping
We’ll deliver the food you collect to homeless hostels, refuges, older people’s lunch clubs, children’s breakfast clubs and other charities working with people in need.
It will be combined with the fresh surplus food, such as meat and vegetables, that we receive from the food industry. Most of this surplus is fresh so we need you to help us collect those long-life items to make a nutritionally balanced meal for someone.
This is the ninth Neighbourhood Food Collection that we are running with Tesco and partner charity Trussell Trust at Tesco stores across the UK.
Let’s do something TIN-credible and make this the biggest collection ever.
