Motion text

That this House congratulates Tesco, in partnership with the Trussell Trust and FareShare, following their second national food collection on 5 and 6 July to help address food poverty; commends Tesco's pledge to top up the value of all customer donations by 30 per cent and recognises the contribution of Tesco customers, staff and volunteers in collecting 3.5 million meals, the equivalent to 26,000 shopping trolleys of food, to help those most in need of support; notes that the partnership's first national collection, held last December, was the biggest ever food collection and that this second collection was extended to every Tesco store across the country meaning even more food was collected; and further notes because of this expansion the second collection is now the biggest ever national food collection.
