Since the beginning of lockdown, FareShare has seen the demand for its services skyrocket. The number of charities who have applied to receive food has more than tripled in the last few months.
To help FareShare meet this increased need for food, Tesco is running an additional Summer Food Collection in stores across the UK from 20-22 August in support of FareShare and Trussell Trust.
The collection will support FareShare in delivering vital food supplies to frontline organisations providing a lifeline to those most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. However, due to social distancing rules, there won’t be any volunteers in store for this collection to help with handing out shopping lists and collecting donated items.
This is why your help is needed, to help raise awareness of the collection to encourage shoppers to donate in store if they are able to.
Virtual Volunteers can pledge their support for FareShare in a number of ways – every small action can have a big impact! You can download a Virtual Volunteer pack here.
