Foodbank volunteers will be collecting at Tesco in Widnes this July

Volunteers at a supermarket collection

Subject to Coronavirus restrictions, volunteers from Widnes Foodbank will be on hand to collect donations of food from the public at Tesco next month.

The collection comes as part of the national “Neighbourhood Food Collection” partnership between Tesco, The Trussell Trust and Fareshare.

Volunteers will be in the store from 9am until 5pm on Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th July 2021.

To ensure the safety of everyone, and unlike previous manned collections in the store, volunteers will not be handing out printed shopping lists. Anyone interested in donating will instead be encouraged to donate items of food from large-printed posters. Volunteers will also be following applicable safety advice and guidance whilst in store.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has previously donated, and to all volunteers who have previously given time to help out at these collections.
