Help support people in crisis within your community this summer by joining us for the UK’s biggest food collection.
How does the Food Collection work?
The summer holidays can be a very difficult time for families and individuals who are already managing on extremely tight budgets.
The Summer Food Collection is a partnership between Tesco, the Trussell Trust, and FareShare. This year, for three days in July, Tesco is organising and hosting a nationwide drive to encourage customers to buy an extra item or two of food when they shop in store and donate it at the collection point on their way out. The food donated is used by the charities to support families and individuals who are struggling to put food on the table.
Each participating Trussell Trust food bank is partnered with a local Tesco store and works with volunteers and Tesco staff, greeting shoppers on their way in to store and highlighting items that the food bank needs most.
Tesco generously tops up customer food donations, by making a financial contribution equivalent to 20% of the value of the food. So, by getting involved, you will not only help provide vital food for people experiencing crisis, but the top-up funding will help Trussell Trust food banks provide people with further support.
We are thrilled that the UK’s largest supermarket shares our vision that no one should go hungry, and is working together with us and FareShare to empower local communities to fight poverty.
We really appreciate your support to ensure we can provide essentials to those in crisis #EveryCanHelps
