Two teens offered a helping hand to FareShare’s annual food collection to help those in need this Christmas.

Hosaam Safdar and Muhit Chowdhury, both aged 19, supported this year’s food drive at Tesco in Whitechapel, East London, which took place over three days in early December.

The pair who were volunteering for Islamic Relief greeted customers as they came in with a list of items most needed by charities. The aim was to encourage shoppers to buy items and donate them at the end of their shop.

In just three hours the volunteers collected 32 crates of food. FareShare estimates that equate to enough food to make 600 meals.Safdar said: “‘Helping out at the food drive was one of the most important experiences of my life. I feel we need to do more for our local community and those in need. This is such a great initiative. I am so glad that I was able to take part.”
