Volunteer to fight hunger Thursday 21, Friday 22 and Saturday 23rd November 2019. Sign up at: https://fareshare.org.uk/tescofoodcollection/ This winter join Team FareShare at the nation’s biggest food drive to help fight hunger in the UK. You can make a big difference to the 8.4 million people currently living in food poverty in the UK, as donating just three hours to help collect food on any of the days above, could collect enough food for 600 meals! You will be in store handing out FareShare 'shopping lists' with suggested donations. Sign up as an individual or bring your colleagues, family and friends with you. Imagine, just give three hours of your time and in a morning or afternoon you could collect enough tins, cans and store-cupboard staples for 600 meals for people in need. 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. Let’s do something TIN-credible and make this the biggest collection ever. Why volunteer?
