Help collect donations at the UK’s largest food drive this Christmas.
We’re looking for volunteers to join our fantastic food drive team to help fight hunger in the UK. 8.4 million people in the UK are struggling to afford to eat – that’s the equivalent to the population of London. Make a difference to them by volunteering this Christmas.
How You Can Help
- The Food Collection takes place on Thursday 30 November, Friday 1 and Saturday 2 December at Tesco stores UK-wide.
- We need volunteers to help us collect food donations from customers for a few hours in their local store.
- Volunteers will be in store handing out the FareShare ‘shopping list’ and collecting donations from customers whilst spreading some Christmas cheer.
- What’s more, Tesco will top up the food collected by a further 20% donation, so the more food we can collect, the better.
“As it was happening locally, it was an easily accessible way to do something that makes a difference & gives something to the community” Anna, FareShare food drive volunteer.
FareShare is a UK wide charity fighting hunger and food waste. We redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline organisations supporting vulnerable people, such as children’s breakfast clubs, community centres homeless hostels and refuges. Whilst we receive a steady supply of fresh food from the food industry, we still need longer-life items such as rice, tea and tinned goods. This is where you can step in and make a real difference.
This is a quick and easy way to make a huge impact. In just 3 hours you could collect enough food to make 600 meals!
