You Can Help With Our Tesco Food Collection

6th November 2017

We need your help on the last weekend of November. Like Trussell Trust Foodbanks all over the country, we are running our largest supermarket collection of the year in partnership with Tescos. 
 

When: Thursday 30 November – Sat 2nd December 9am to 5pm
Where: Tesco, 128 Clapham Common South Side, Clapham South, SW4 9DF

The Winter months are a difficult time for people in crisis. For families, the School Holidays add extra financial strain as free school meals are no longer to children. The cold meanwhile forces people to make difficult choices between food and fuel. 

The holiday season has an effect too. Christmas is meant to be a time of celebration, but it can be a time of intense pressure for those in crisis. Buying enough cards, decorations and presents can mean individuals choose to skip meals to balance the budget. 

Due to this, we are expecting big demand to our Foodbank over the winter period.

 

How You Can Help

  • Donate food at Tescos – Simply pick up a Trussell Trust shopping list and donate a few items to our collection. Tescos have agreed to match 20% of the cost of all food collected! 
  • Volunteer for an hour or two – This would involve asking shoppers who visit the store to donate extra items to the Foodbank (full support given). Please sign up here.
