Last weekend, more than 30 Sodexo colleagues volunteered their time to support Stop Hunger at Tesco supermarkets up and down the UK in their annual Food Collection.
The food items donated by their customers will go directly to The Trussell Trust and FareShare to support families and those most in need over the upcoming festive season. As part of the collection, for every item donated in-store, Tesco will generously add an extra 20% top-up.
Lesley McDonald, UK&I HSE Manager (Service Operations), attended a food collection at Tesco in Altrincham with colleague and friend Julie Wagner, UK&I Food Safety Manager. Lesley had a great time collecting food knowing that it was going to a great cause, "It was really enjoyable and such a good feeling when you see the donations start to fill up – there are lots of generous people in Altrincham! It has definitely spurred me on to want to do more.

The Trussell Trust say that just £10 can help give a mother peace of mind that her family will not go hungry tonight.
With FareShare’s support, £20 could provide 80 hot meals for families on low or no incomes at a community centre.
