Food2You Tesco shop, Tuesday edition

Tue 2 Mar 09:00 am
Tesco Extra, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, London, SE16 7LL
Help this fantastic organisation

Are you available to help our friends at Food2You on a Tuesday morning in Surrey Quays? This is a fun task that will make a big difference!

What's involved?

  • Meet Food2You team at Tesco in Surrey Quays between 9-11am
  • Pick up a shopping list and head into the store to find the items
  • Bring these back to the team, where together, you will double check the items before they are boxed to go through the till

ON ARRIVAL

  • If you arrive and there is a queue, go to the front and tell them you are volunteering with Food2You/Age UK and they will let you in
  • Walk through the store to the far end. In between the alcohol and the bakery section there is a big double white door. Go through the door, turn left, and Terry and the team should all be in there
  • If you can't find the way, look out for shoppers in Tesco with red clipboards, that say 'I'm shopping for local older people' on the back, and they will be able to point you in the right direction!

Food2You is a shopping delivery service provided for older people through Age UK. We are excited to be able to get involved, with this task now a weekly activity on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

You will, of course, need to adhere to social distancing rules, wear a mask and gloves and take direction from the Food2You team.

Sat 20 Feb
Report written by Cat Virden

We met up at Life After Hummus and set of with our wheely basket up Camden Town to Tescos.

It was a lovely sunny day - perfect for a chat and a bit of light exercise.

Tescos offered two bags of baked goods - i'm sure they went down a treat!!
