Tesco & FareShare Partnership
In what is now the tenth year of partnership, the relationship between food charity FareShare and Tesco has been bolstered by an exponential increase in support from the retailer. This includes additional funding to support the charity through the cost of living crisis, an extra annual food collection, an innovative campaign called Buy One to Help a Child (BOTHAC) and a donation only pop up shop, The Give Back Express.
Across two BOTHAC campaigns and The Give Back Express, Tesco and its customers donated more than £5m to FareShare. Some of this funding enabled FareShare to purchase additional food to meet demand, while the rest ensured that its network of 31 regional centres could continue vital operations during the cost of living crisis.
