Tesco applications close on Friday for anyone who provides Food or cooking for families in need
There are currently no applications in for Food Insecurity for the Tesco Formby Store (L37 8DP). With the situation we all find ourselves in, it would seem that lots of people are struggling with food insecurity and it would be a real shame if the next quarters grant from Tesco was passed over.
Just to confirm that in each round of funding, Tesco support at least one organisation who work with children & young people and another, who provide food or cooking facilities for families in need of help.
In light of this, it would be of great benefit to any organisation in the Formby store (wider) area if they could apply for a grant. As you may already know, the three shortlisted organisations are voted on by the customers and the three grants equate to £1500 for first place, £1000 for second and £500 for third.
The closing date is this Friday and a link to the Tesco Community Grant application can be found here:
