Tesco Winter Food Collection

Every year at Tesco in Shrewsbury we ask our very generous customers to help us collect long-life items of food for our charity partners FairShare and The Trussell Trust in the summer and at winter.
We collected over 900k meals when we did this in July across the UK, and we are hoping this food collection will be even more successful.
To help us, we would like you to ask your school community to donate tins, items of long-life food like pasta, soups, and dried goods from the shopping list below. We would kindly ask everyone to bring these into a central collection point in school or into our stores when shopping.
Shopping list
Tinned Meat/Fish
Tinned Fruit and Puddings
Tinned Vegetables
UHT Milk
Cooking Sauces

Our collection is taking place in store from Thursday the 18th to Saturday the 20th of November and there will be a donation point at the front of the store.

All customer donations will be topped up by Tesco by 20% in cash.

Who are our two charity partners?

The Trussell Trust – support foodbanks to provide three days of emergency food to individuals and families in crisis. Visit the www.trusselltrust.org.uk Trussell Trust website for more details.

FairShare (who we collect for at Tesco Extra Shrewsbury) – is a UK-wide charity that redistributes food that would otherwise go to waste to charities and community groups who turn the food into nutritious meals and provide life-changing support. Visit www.FareShare.org.uk website to learn more

How else can you help?

We are looking for volunteers to talk to customers and remind them to buy an extra item or two to donate in store over the collection. Please visit https://fareshare.org.uk/foodcollection/

  • Spread the word about the collection, encourage parents to drop into the store and donate an item or two as part of their weekly shop.

    We are so grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you in store with your collections and hearing about the generosity of your school at what we know will be such a challenging time for so many this winter.
