FlatShare are looking for volunteers for The Tesco Food Collection, this will start on

FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, helping to support organisations such as kid’s breakfast clubs, community centres, homeless hostels and refuges. At FareShare they help over 9,653 charities make delicious and nutritious meals by saving food from going to waste. Whilst they receive a steady supply of fresh food from the food industry, they still need longer-life items such as rice, tea and tinned goods.
The food you collect will be transported to FareShare Regional Centres. From there FareShare provides the food to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people – including homeless shelters, children’s breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs and domestic violence refuges. These organisations transform this food into nutritious meals, which they provide alongside life-changing support.
Last year, FareShare UK redistributed more than 16,992 tonnes of food to over 9,653 charities and community groups, enough to provide 36.7 million meals for people in need.
