The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Fourteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year 2,5 million three-day emergency food supplies were distributed to people in crisis.
Huge thanks to all Tesco customers who donated so generously at the Foodbank collections at Bedford Tesco stores. Altogether, at both stores and across the three days, we collected 5,077kg of food donated by Tesco customers and over £400 in the cash collection tins. The food collection is enough to provide approx 560 single 3-day food parcels, and will be a vital boost to our regular weekly supermarket pickups as we go into next year. Many thanks for your vital generosity.
