John Lewis & Waitrose will launch a campaign in November to raise £5 million to help FareShare and Home-Start support struggling families in the UK.
The campaign, launched in response to the current times, which have seen FareShare double the amount of food it provides since the pandemic started, will be complemented by this year's Waitrose and John Lewis Christmas ad.
The retailers are aiming to provide support for at least 100,000 families by raising the funds for FareShare and Home-Start, whilst also shining a light on the long term need for kindness as the impact of the pandemic continues.
