Store’s food collection for people in need
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.”
