Help NTU's Foodshare project get 'Bags of Help'

NTU's Foodshare: Growing to Give project has been selected to receive an award from Tesco's 'Bags of Help' initiative, and we need your help to bag the top award!

Nottingham Trent University's Foodshare: Growing to Give project has been selected to receive an award from Tesco's 'Bags of Help' initiative, and you can help us win the top award of £12,000 to expand our work.

Tesco has teamed up with environmental charity Groundwork to run its Bags of Help initiative in various regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p carrier bag charge.

What is Foodshare?
Foodshare: Growing to Give is an allotment space open to all NTU staff and students to grow pesticide-free fruit and veg. It is then donated to local charity Emmanuel House, which supports homeless and vulnerable people in Nottingham. 

The grant will allow the Foodshare team to expand our site on the Clifton Campus to incorporate an outdoor classroom which can be used by local primary schools and community groups.

Get Voting
The public now have the chance to vote for their preferred project in-store from 27 February until 6 March 2016. The project with the most votes will receive the biggest prize, so we need your help. When shopping in local Tesco stores, look out for the 'Bags of Help' voting stations and cast your vote for Foodshare: Growing to Give.
