Kind-hearted volunteers are being sought in Dundee to help with a nationwide food collection to help people in need this Christmas.
Leading food charities FareShare and the Trussell Trust are looking for people to help staff donation points at larger Tesco stores from Thursday November 30 to Saturday December 2 as part of the Tesco food collection.
The annual collection will encourage Tesco customers to donate long-life food.
Tesco will top up donations by 20% to further support the two charities in their work.
Last year 3.4 million meals were collected in the Tesco food collection and since the launch in 2012 more than 46 million meals have been donated by customers.
To make this year’s collection a success, volunteers are needed to hand out shopping lists to customers so they can see the items needed in their area and to answer any questions they may have.
Samantha Stapley, operations manager for the Trussell Trust, said: “Foodbanks will be doing all they can to provide emergency support so people don’t go hungry this Christmas, but to make sure everyone referred receives vital help our network needs your support.”
