FareShare UK are working with Tesco to arrange one of the largest food collections in the UK.  Our three day food collection event will take place on Thursday 29 November, Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December.  We are looking for people to sign up for three hour shifts over the three days.  This will involve standing in the store handing out FareShare shopping lists with suggested donations and collecting donations when they are made.      

With 8.4million people currently living in food poverty in the UK, one person can help us make a big difference by donating three hours of their time, we have estimated that in three hours alone someone could help us collect enough food for 600 meals.  

To sign up please visit https://fareshare.org.uk/tescofoodcollection/ it takes two minutes to do and once you have booked on you will receive an email confirmation which includes a handy information booklet.  

Details are also on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FareShareNorthEast
