Tesco customers in Glasgow donate more than 31,000 meals

Thanks to Tesco customers’ donations, thousands of meals have been donated to people in need in Glasgow and surrounding areas.

The donated food during the Tesco food collection between November 29 and Dec 1, will be given to the two food charities FareShare and The Trussell Trust.

The store asked customers to donate long-life items.

CEO at FareShare thanked Tesco customers for their generosity, Lindsay Boswell said:
 “The food donated at the Tesco Food Collection will make a tremendous difference to the thousands of charities and community groups that FareShare supports”.

Chief Executive at The Trussell Trust added, Emma Revie: “Our food bank network has spent the last month making sure that people referred to them with no money for food don’t go hungry this Christmas. This work has been made possible thanks to the incredible generosity of Tesco customers, store colleagues and volunteers during the Food Collection. Thank you for your support – your generosity has stopped hunger this Christmas.”
