Over the last couple of days and through tomorrow (1st to 3rd December), we are hosting a food collection with Tesco as part of the ninth Neighbourhood Food Collection. Christmas can be a difficult time for individuals and families who are already managing on extremely tight budgets. The increased winter fuel bills, and the pressure of choosing between heating and eating, will sadly push many families into food crisis. Donations made to our foodbank are used to provide three-days of nutritionally balanced, emergency food to people in crisis that have been referred by frontline professional agencies such as Citizens Advice or children’s centres. Whilst at the foodbank, clients will be welcomed, listened to and signposted to services that can provide support with the underlying causes of their crisis, helping to break the cycle of poverty. Tesco top up customer donations by making a 20% financial contribution, so by getting involved you will not only help provide vital food for UK people experiencing crisis, but funds will help Trussell Trust foodbanks provide important support beyond food, to tackle the root causes of poverty. We are thrilled that the UK’s largest supermarket shares our vision that no one should gohungry, and is working with us to empower local communities and fight poverty.

Join us and Help Stop UK Hunger

Simply pick up one of our shopping lists and donate an item or two (or more!) at Tesco Extra St Neots, to help stop people going hungry in your community.
