Tesco calls out to charities in Hereford to register for free food donation scheme


Charities and community groups in Hereford are being urged to register for a new scheme which will see unsold food at a city supermarket become meals for vulnerable people across the area.

As part of its ongoing pledge to cut food waste, Tesco’s Community Food Connection programme with FareShare FoodCloud recruits and supports charities and community groups.

It links them to Tesco stores via an innovative app that allows store teams to alert them to surplus unsold food items available at the end of each day.

The unsold food is free and includes fresh produce, such as fruit, vegetables and bakery products. Chilled products like meat, dairy and ready meals are also offered.

Any charities or community groups using food to support people that would like to access the scheme, should register their interest by visiting fareshare.org.uk/fareshare-foodcloud
