Buying Tesco Free From products? Time it right and Tesco will donate 10p per item bought to The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation

In 2016, Natasha Ednan-Laperouse tragically died from a severe allergic reaction after eating inadequately-labelled food. It's the worst-case scenario any person with allergies could face, and a parent's worst nightmare. Natasha's parents set up a charity, The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation, to help fund allergy research, and to bring positive change for people with food allergies.

For the fifth year in a row, Tesco has partnered with The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation for Allergy Awareness Week, from Monday 22 April to Sunday 28 April. You won't need to pay any extra to help raise money, and you don't even need to change what you'd normally buy if you already purchase from the Tesco Free From range.

How do I donate to charity with my shopping?

Tesco will donate 10p from the sale of every own-label Tesco Free From product sold from Monday 22 April to Sunday 28 April  bought either online or in stores, to The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation. So if you normally purchase from the Tesco Free From range, time it right and you'll be helping the charity. If you don't normally buy Free From but would like to help support The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation, even if you buy 45p chocolate, Tesco will donate 10p to the charity.

If you're able, for the first time you can also donate to The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation by rounding up your shop to the nearest £1 at self-service tills.

Cheapest items in the Tesco Free From range

If you don't normally shop from the Free From range at Tesco, here are five cheap items you could buy that are eligible for Tesco's 10p donation, if suitable for you.

Tesco Free From product Price
Chocolate buttons 25g (free from gluten, wheat, milk and vegan) 45p
White chocolate bar 35g (free from gluten, wheat, milk and vegan) 50p
Original porridge pot 55g (free from gluten, wheat, milk and vegan) 75p
Penne pasta 500g (free from gluten, wheat, egg and vegan) 75p
Spaghetti 500g (free from gluten, wheat, egg and vegan) 75p

Important: If you or your family have allergies, don't assume 'Free From' automatically means free from all allergens. Some items will still contain cow's milk, eggs, gluten, or other allergens, so check the packet every time, especially if you're buying for a little one who can't check the packet themselves.
