To celebrate ‘Co-op Fortnight’, we’ll be launching over 40 food donation points in our shops across Essex.
The ‘Food For Thought…’ campaign will be a huge benefit to dozens of local organisations, each based in the same neighbourhood as their collection point. These including food banks, animal shelters, homeless charities and churches.
