Help us get a share of Tesco’s Community Grants fund

We’re in the customer vote for a Tesco Community Grant, a scheme which gives community projects like us grants of up to £1,500. You can vote for us while shopping at your local Tesco store to decide how much funding we get, so please support us next time you shop at Tesco! 

We're in 100 different Tesco stores across the country, so please keep a look out at your checkout and support us where you can.

How will this help?

This grant will help us, UKHarvest, create community opportunities within your local area. From free cookery classes to providing food to your local charities, we can’t wait to bring the bright yellow vans of UKHarvest to you.

Liz Woodsell, COO of UKHarvest said “We are extremely grateful that the Tesco Community Grants have chosen us for their scheme across so many of their stores. The work we do will reach both their customers and the local community, and so it is fantastic that those people will be able to vote for us.”

Three groups in every community have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are invited to vote for who they think should win by using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop.

Claire De Silva, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes but especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”
