MP Damian Green was at Park Farm, Tesco, to pro­mote the store’s food col­lec­tion.

The su­per­mar­ket at Moat­field Meadow, as well as the Crooks­foot Tesco by Junc­tion 10 of the M20, took part in a national food col­lec­tion last Satur­day.

The col­lec­tion was in con­junc­tion with Food­banks char­ity the Trus­sell Trust and food re­dis­tri­bu­tion char­ity Fareshare.

David Beck­ley, store man­ager at the Park Farm store said: “We were over­whelmed by the re­sponse we had from cus­tomers and, thanks to their gen­eros­ity, we man­aged to col­lect an in­cred­i­ble amount for lo­cal peo­ple in need.

“Col­leagues and vol­un­teers from the lo­cal food­bank have been work­ing hard to make sure food can be dis­trib­uted to peo­ple in the lo­cal com­mu­nity as quickly as pos­si­ble.”
