Volunteers at the December 2012 collection

Christmas Collection for Widnes Foodbank at Tesco Extra

CalendarPosted on 11th November 2020

Tesco in Widnes will once again be holding a food collection for our foodbank later this month.

The #EveryCanHelps food collection, which takes place in Tesco stores nationally, is a joint partnership between Tesco and foodbank charity The Trussell Trust.

Between Thursday 19th and Saturday 21st November all food donations at the store will be topped up by Tesco. This additional top up is by means of a financial contribution equivalent to 20% of the total donated food value.

If you are shopping in the store we would really appreciate your help if you could pop an extra item from our shopping list in your trolley.

Ordinarily, pre-pandemic, volunteers from our foodbank would be on-hand at the collection to hand out shopping lists and to talk about our work. Due to the current situation though the collection point will be un-manned.
