People in Bradford are being asked to take part in one of the UK’s biggest food donation events this summer.

The Trussell Trust and FareShare are marking 10 years working with Tesco to collect food donations in its supermarkets.

More volunteers than ever are needed for the Tesco Food Collection, taking place at the supermarket’s larger stores from June 30 to July 2.

During the collection, customers will be asked to donate long-life food.

Volunteers will speak to customers, encourage them to donate and help them to choose items most needed by food banks and charities.

Tesco will top up all the food donated and make an additional 20 per cent cash donation to the two charities.

Gareth Batty MBE, Chief Executive at FareShare Yorkshire, said: “We would be hugely grateful to anyone who is able to volunteer to encourage more shoppers to donate much-needed food.”
