Food Collection Volunteers Needed For FareShare Sussex

20171130_fareshare_051FareShare Sussex’s annual Tesco Food Collection is happening 29 November – 1 December. During that time, they will be collecting food for charities and community groups: long life staples like rice or pasta, tinned meat or veg, tea, coffee and cereal bars, together with the fresh food we provide for people in need on a regular basis.

To make this happen, FareShare Sussex need your help. They need volunteers across the Sussex and Surrey to sign up to three hour shifts in their local Tesco stores to help collect the food by handing out shopping lists to Tesco customers, explaining how Tesco Food Collection works and encouraging them to make donations. The more volunteers sign up, the more food we can collect. An average shift of three hours can generate as much as 600 meals!

FareShare Sussex have stores in Crawley, Gatwick, Pulborough, Burgess Hill and Lewes that would love you to join them. Particularly, if you’re a 9-5 worker as they have Saturday and evening shifts calling out for food heroes to sign up.
