Tesco are offering free food

Supermarket giant Tesco is calling on charities and community groups in and around Kirkintilloch to register for a scheme which will see unsold food become meals for vulnerable people.

As part of its ongoing pledge to cut food waste, Tesco’s Community Food Connection programme with FareShare FoodCloud notifies charities of spare food via an app at the end of each day.

The unsold food is free and includes fresh produce, such as fruit, vegetables meat, dairy and bakery products.

Any charities or community groups in Kirkintilloch using food to support people that would like to access the scheme, should register their interest by visiting www.fareshare.org.uk/fareshare-foodcloud.

Rachel Finn, Head of Community Food Programmes at Tesco, said: We are looking forward to forging strong links with local charities and community groups in Kirkintilloch, and to use this initiative to support their efforts to help vulnerable people in our community.”
