Tesco – Food Collection

28th November 2017

Tesco Collection 2017

Help us support people facing hunger this winter by joining us for the UK’s biggest food collection.

The Tesco Food Collection is manned by our volunteers who will hand out shopping lists of tinned and dried goods at our local Tesco stores to encourage customers to buy an extra item of food or two during their shop. Customers can then kindly donate these items to Aberdeenshire North Foodbank on their way out of the store at a food collection point.

These donations will be used to provide three-days of emergency food to people in crisis. Aberdeenshire North Foodbank works with frontline professionals to identify people in need and issue them with a foodbank voucher. These include organisations such as children’s centres, housing associations, welfare agencies and community mental health teams.

Following the collection, Tesco generously tops up the customer food donations gifting an extra 20% as a financial contribution to the foodbanks. Every donated item will not only help provide vital food for people experiencing crisis, but gain additional top up funding that will help Trussell Trust foodbanks provide much needed further support.

We are thrilled that Tesco, the UK’s largest supermarket, shares our vision that no one should go hungry, and is working together with The Trussell Trust and FareShare toempower local communities to fight poverty.

Will you join us to help stop UK hunger?

Donate in store:

Our volunteers will be handing out shopping lists during the day, so please consider donating an item or two at the Inverurie, Huntly and Ellon stores, to help stop people going hungry in your community.
