The Neighbourhood Food Collection is part of Tesco ongoing effort to encourage customers to donate long-life food to charity. Since they ran their first collection in 2012, they have collected over 38 million meals!


Tesco have teamed up with two charity partners – The Trussell Trust and FareShare – support a wide range of people in the UK who find themselves in desperate need of support. There are many reasons why people find themselves in this situation, from receiving an unexpected bill when on a low income to being alone and struggling to fight an addiction.


Foodbank by Trussell Trust:

Emergency food and support for people in crisis -

Trussell Trust foodbanks provide three days of emergency food to individuals and families in crisis. Frontline, professional agencies like the Citizen's Advice Bureau and children centres refer people who are facing a crisis to their local foodbank.

People visiting foodbanks are welcomed, listened to and signposted to other services that are able to provide further support, helping to break the cycle of poverty.

By donating food you can help support local people in crisis in a simple practical way.


FareShare - Fighting hunger, tackling food waste:

FareShare rescues good food which would otherwise go to waste and redistributes it to charities like women's refuges, homeless shelters and children's breakfast clubs. Most of this food is fresh so you're playing a vital part in helping us feed people by donating store-cupboard staples.

Last year we provided varied, nutritious food to over 1,900 charities and community projects, who turned it into 15.3 million meals.

Each charity saves on average £13,000 per year, which can be reinvested into other support services to help get people back on their feet.
