Chippenham store's plea to help food for needy

Tesco is running its fourth neighbourhood food collection in a bid to collect meals for those in need.

Food can be donated in Chippenham’s Emery Gate store until Saturday.

Customers will be given a specially selected shopping list when they enter the store and will be asked to pick up an item of food such as long-life milk, cereal, tinned foods and tea and coffee before donating it at the end of their shop.

Tesco will top up total donations by a further 30 per cent. The food will be given to people in times of crisis by food redistribution charity FareShare.

Store manager James Ryan said: “Our customers were incredibly generous when we held our last food collection in the winter, so we’re hoping to collect an even bigger total this time around.”
