Tesco Community Grants fund thousands of local community projects across the UK, helping to fight holiday hunger, tackle mental health, support young people, host community events and much more.

Please visit the Tesco Stronger Starts website to find out more about what kinds of projects can be supported, to apply for a grant and to nominate local projects.

Tesco Community Grants support local good causes that focus on helping children and families.

The scheme is open to all schools, registered charities and not-for-profit organisations, with priority given to projects that provide food and support to young people. 

Examples of eligible applications with a focus on food security, children and young people could be:

  • A school providing pupils with food for breakfast clubs or snacks throughout the day.
  • A school wanting to buy equipment for outdoor or indoor activities.
  • A school wanting to develop a food growing area.
  • A school supporting an after school club.
  • A voluntary organisation working with families to run a food bank.
  • An organisation addressing holiday hunger.
  • A healthy eating project that supports families to cook healthy meals on a budget.
  • A Brownie or Scout group needing funding for new play equipment or activities.

If you are a Tesco colleague or customer, you can also nominate a cause that you’d like to see supported. 

Tesco’s customers are given a blue token at the checkout which they can use to vote for their favourite project to receive a grant.
