Sur­plus store food of­fered to groups

Caernarfon Herald - - NOSTALGIA -

TESCO of­fers more sur­plus food to com­mu­nity groups in North Wales.

Char­i­ties and com­mu­nity groups in North Wales are be­ing in­vited to sign up to re­ceive sur­plus food from their lo­cal Tesco store.

Across the UK the su­per­mar­ket dis­trib­utes hun­dreds of thou­sands of meals to good causes ev­ery week as part of its Com­mu­nity Food Con­nec­tion scheme, which is run in con­junc­tion with food re­dis­tri­bu­tion char­ity FareShare and pow­ered by FoodCloud tech­nol­ogy.

Al­most 7,000 char­i­ties and com­mu­nity groups al­ready re­ceive sur­plus food from Tesco through the award-win­ning scheme, with re­cip­i­ents in­clud­ing older peo­ple’s lunch clubs, school break­fast clubs and char­i­ties work­ing with vul­ner­a­ble and home­less peo­ple.

But more food is avail­able, and Tesco is reach­ing out to groups in North Wales to en­cour­age them to find out more about how they could re­ceive sur­plus food from the su­per­mar­ket.

Groups reg­is­tered with the Com­mu­nity Food Con­nec­tion are given sched­uled col­lec­tion days and re­ceive a text alert to tell them what food is avail­able at their lo­cal Tesco store.

If you are a char­ity or com­mu­nity group that could ben­e­fit from the sup­port of Com­mu­nity Food Con­nec­tion then visit www.fareshare.org. uk/fareshare-go to find out more.
