Sainsbury’s and FareShare are to repeat last year’s Million Meals Appeal this October - with a little help from TV chef Lorraine Pascale.

She is leading the call for volunteers for the appeal, which last year helped deliver food to more than 1.2 million people.

“The Million Meals Appeal is a wonderful initiative,” she said. “I encourage everyone to volunteer at their local Sainsbury’s on 6 October and help FareShare fight hunger and food waste in the UK.”
