We’re getting behind the food charity FareShare, who provide essentials to over 4,000 community food banks across the country. A little co-operation from our members and customers can make a big difference. Together, we’ve raised enough for over two million meals but we still need more. So please, be a local hero and donate by using one of the options below, including the option for Co-op members to donate their rewards through the Co-op Members’ Coronavirus Fund. Also, you can get involved by taking part in our Take 5, Donate 5 challenge.
