Thursday 29 November, Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December

At FareShare we help over 9,653 charities make 36.7 million meals a year by saving over 16,000 tonnes of good quality surplus food from the food industry. The Tesco Food Collection is a really important source of longer-life items such as rice, pasta and tinned goods so your support is really valuable. This is where you can step in and become a Christmas hero.

Just 9 sleeps to go to the launch of the Tesco Food Collection, last year this event generated 761 pallets of ambient food, that’s 34 lorry loads of much needed ambient food.

“Food has been a real catalyst for change among the community here this summer – not just providing new food experiences for many kids, but also connecting and engaging children and families.”

Katie Hanchard-Goodwin, Manager of Bristol Playbus
