Dover Food Bank

It was great to have the opportunity to meet with the Dover Food Bank volunteers to hear about all the wonderful work they and their volunteers have been doing this year.

The Tesco Neighbourhood Food Collection, in conjunction with The Trussell Trust and FareShare is a great initiative. It helps to support families in need so that they can get back on their feet.

Across the country, customers in Tesco stores helped provide 3.6 million meals to people in need over the Summer. The supermarket has pledged a 30% top up donation to the items donated by customers.

I urge everyone to just pick a few items from the list of things the food bank really need when you're doing your shopping. Supporting the work of the Dover Food Bank makes a real difference to people in need.
