Volunteers will be asked to greet Sainsbury's customers and encourage them to buy an extra item of food from the Million Meal Appeal shopping list. FareShare will then deliver the donated food to over 700 charities and community projects across the UK to help families in need, Sainsbury's will match the level of food donations collected over the weekend.
The 'Million Meal' Appeal will help local families struggling with rising living costs and cuts to tax credits. Food banks do an excellent job, but I know that demand is rising under this government. I am supporting the Million Meal Appeal and I urge others to visit www.fareshare.org.uk to see how they can help.
