FareShare East Midlands volunteers will be at Tesco stores from Thursday, June 30 – Saturday, July 2.

Tesco’s twice-yearly Neighbourhood Food Collection in partnership with FareShare and foodbank charity The Trussell Trust, is the UK’s biggest food drive and during the last collection, held in December 2015, the public donated enough food to provide 3.6 million meals for hungry and vulnerable people in the UK. Volunteers will encourage shoppers to donate store cupboard staples such as pasta, rice, tinned fish and tea, which FareShare will then redistribute.
