Christmas collection returns to Tesco

The annual Tesco Christmas Collection returns this year from 18th-20th November, with the search for volunteers across the country already going ahead.

Each year, alongside The Trussell Trust, FareShare Yorkshire work with Tesco for the biggest collection of its kind in the whole of the UK. Volunteers have a vital role in this too, often having a bigger impact on the amount of food donated.

Tesco will be topping up the donations made during the collection with a 20% cash donation too, so with a difficult winter approaching, the collection will have a positive long lasting impact on FareShare Yorkshire.

If you would like to volunteer during the collection, you can find your nearest store here.

270,000 tonnes of perfectly edible food gets wasted by the food industry each year.

That’s enough for nearly 650,000,000 meals
