Twice a year (usually in July and December), Tesco kindly allow us to collect at local stores in South Belfast, for a weekend. We collect at the Newtownbreda Tesco and the Lisburn Road Tesco.
This involves giving out shopping lists to the Tesco shoppers, who are encouraged to get a little extra while doing their shopping and then donate this to our foodbank.
This is a great opportunity to build up our stock, and we usually receive donations of 5 or 6 tonnes of food.
As you can imagine this takes a small army of volunteers and a lot of organisation. So we need all the help we can get.
If you would be interested in helping at these one off events, please get in touch and we will provide you with details closer to the time.
Thank You !
