Our Community Pantry needs you…help us get a share of Tesco’s Community Grants fund!

Tesco works with community charity Groundwork to run its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £1,500, £1,000 and £500 awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every community have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

We are delighted to inform you our Community Pantry is one of the groups on the shortlist!

The Mind in Bexley community pantry is a community food store at The Revival café for those who are finding it difficult to afford all the essentials at the moment. For a contribution of £4, individuals will be able to choose from a variety of fresh, tinned and ready meal foods worth up to £20.

One customer told us “The pantry has helped me out massively for just day to day living”

Voting is open in all Tesco stores in April, May and June and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop.
