Where will the donations go? 

·       Comic Relief  

Sainsbury's and Comic Relief have been partners for 25 years, raising over £170 million to support people in the UK and around the world. Nourish the Nation is Sainsbury’s new programme which aims to tackle food poverty. Working closely with Comic Relief, the aim is to deliver a new programme of grant funding throughout the UK and in selected countries internationally, focussed on tackling food poverty and ensuring communities have improved access to balanced, nutritional, and sustainable food sources. All financial donations (across Sainsbury’s, Argos and Nectar) will be distributed to Comic Relief. 

This Summer, Comic Relief and Sainsbury’s are working together to donate over 1 million meals to help children experiencing food poverty over the school holidays. 

Between 3rd July and 30th July 2024, the money raised through the campaign will go to support brilliant organisations, like Feeding Britain and The Bread and Butter Thing, who will use the donations to provide good healthy meals to give to children in their communities. 

·       £1.75 could help buy a meal for a child at a breakfast club. 

·       £2.50 could help buy a healthy meal for a child during the school holidays. 

·       £10 could pay for enriching activities and a nutritious meal for a child in the school holidays. 

·       £25 could provide 10 healthy meals for children during the school holidays.

·       Local charity partners 

In addition to Sainsbury's support through Comic Relief to tackle food insecurity across the UK, Sainsbury’s is also working in partnership with local charity partners, who are seeing increasing pressure to help feed families facing food poverty up and down the country, by helping redistribute all donated food items in stores to each store's local charity partners. These partners range from food banks to community kitchens to homeless charities.
