FareShare National Food Collection – Volunteer
Thursday, 3 July 2014 at 09:00 – Saturday, 5 July 2014 at 21:00 (BST)
As more and more people are turning to charities for food, FARE SHARE are partnering with Tesco and the Trussell Trust for the fourth time on Thursday 3rd, Friday 4th and Saturday 5th July, to run a national food collection in Tesco stores across the country.
Since December 2012, generous Tesco customers donated enough food for an incredible 10.2 million meals. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with this year’s event so we can do bigger and better. FARE SHARE love for you to be part of it!
Volunteers have a vital role to play in making this event a big success. You’ll be asking shoppers to donate long life products like rice, pasta, tea and coffee, as these items rarely become surplus. This food will be combined with the surplus, fresh produce FARESHARE receive daily from the food industry and redistributed to over 1,290 charities and community projects across the UK, reaching vulnerable people, such as children in breakfast clubs, women fleeing domestic violence and older people in luncheon clubs.
If you’re up for the challenge, FARE SHARE would love to hear from you! To find your local Tesco store and register as a volunteer please complete the registration form:
