We continue a full national operation to get food to vulnerable people during the Covid-19 crisis.

Tesco Food Collection

Tesco is running a special Food Collection this summer to help provide extra food support for children and families over the school holidays. It is taking place in Tesco Extras and Superstores from 15 – 17 July and in all Tesco Express stores from 12 July until 28 August. Food will reach those who need it via FareShare and the Trussell Trust.

At FareShare we provide food to more than 10,500 charities across the UK, with the majority supporting children in some way, be it through holiday clubs and youth groups or providing food support to families through food banks and community centres.

After an incredibly tough year, thousands of families are facing real hardship and struggling to put food on the table. Donations from this Food Collection will support so many families in need and we need your help to make this happen!

So How Can You Help?

1) Volunteer

Give three hours of your time to volunteer in a Tesco store and encourage shoppers to give an item or two to FareShare* There will be a shopping list to help customers choose what to buy and donate, full of really useful long-life items for the charities providing food on the front line.

Sign up with a family member, friend, colleague or neighbour today and know that you will be making a difference this summer It’s happening in large Tesco stores on 15, 16 and 17 July and in just three hours you could collect enough food for 600 meals!

2) Help us recruit more volunteers

If you can’t volunteer yourself, you can help just us much by sharing this opportunity with anyone you know who is fit, willing and able and encouraging them to sign up for a shift!

3) Create some noise and support us virtually!

Help from the comfort of your own home by sharing information about the Food Collection on social media. There’s lots of information to help with that in this handy pack which can also be shared with others to do the same. The more people who know about it and sign up to volunteer the more food we will collect and the more people we can help.

*the health and safety of FareShare’s volunteers is our number one priority. Volunteering is allowed under current Government guidelines, however, Tesco and FareShare will comply with any restrictions or additional advice from government.
