The UK’s largest food drive needs volunteers

22nd October 2019

Tesco Stores in partnership with FareShare Yorkshire are gearing up to help feed people in need this Christmas.

Volunteers are needed to help collect food donations from customers in their local Tesco Store. In just three hours you could collect enough food to make 600 meals.

As a volunteer, you will be in store handing out FareShare “shopping lists” with suggestions of what to donate and collecting donations from customers whilst spreading some Christmas cheer.

The food you collect will then be redistributed to nearly 11,000 charities across the country. Sign up to volunteer as an individual or bring your colleagues, family and friends with you.

You can make a big difference to the 8.4 million people currently living in food poverty in the UK.

The dates volunteers will be needed are:

  • Thursday 21 November
  • Friday 22 November
  • Saturday 23 November

If you wish to get involved please sign up on the fareshare.org.uk website.
