More than 2,000 meals have been provided to people in need this Christmas thanks to customer donations at Tesco in Sudbury.
Supermarket shoppers were asked to donate long-life items to help people in need and Tesco topped up the value of customer donations by 20%.
Thanks to the generosity of customers, this year’s collection has seen more than £3million meals donated nationally.
In Sudbury, a total of 2,267 meals were donated to charities FareShare and The Trussell Trust thanks to the collection, which ran until December 2.
Lindsay Boswell, CEO at FareShare, said: “The food donated at the Tesco food collection will make a tremendous difference to the thousands of charities and community groups that FareShare supports.
