TESCO is making it easier for shoppers in Bradford and across Yorkshire to give a helping hand to foodbanks and charities feeding people in their local community.

The Tesco Food Collection is taking place in every large Tesco store across the UK from Thursday, June 30, until Saturday, July 2, and shoppers are being urged to donate long-life food to support local foodbanks in the Trussell Trust’s network and thousands of frontline charities supplied by FareShare.

Tesco will top up all food donations made during the collection with an extra 20 per cent cash donation to support the two charities.

To make it easier for customers to donate, shoppers can round up their bill at the checkout to make a small donation to the charities, and pre-filled donation bags with some of the items that are most needed will be available in selected stores.

Tesco Head of Community, Claire de Silva, said: “This collection marks ten years of us working with the Trussell Trust and FareShare.

"During that decade our customers have been amazingly generous, donating more than 100 million meals during our food collections and at permanent collection points in Tesco stores, but we wanted to make it even easier for customers to donate this summer.”
