Food banks need help
Not long ago our colleague Minue explained to us how food banks work and the important social work they carry out with the help of volunteers and donations received. Currently, and due to the crisis that the country is going through, the demand is so great that right now there is hardly any stock of food in their warehouses, so the food banks need our help.
These organizations that exist in each community are non-profit based on volunteering and whose objective is to recover surplus food from our society and redistribute it among people in need, avoiding any waste or misuse. Right now and since yesterday Friday there is a new campaign to collect non-perishable food. In principle, the collection was planned only for this weekend, but it has been extended, given the great need, a whole week.
In many supermarkets and department stores you can find staff with vests and badges of these organizations to whom you can donate all kinds of food. It is preferable that they are basic foods such as legumes, pasta, cans ... that are not perishable and have a long expiration date, but specific products for children such as powdered milk or baby food are also very necessary, which are of higher price and of which very few donated units are received.
Right now the food banks need all the help possible, so pass this message to everyone you know, and within the measure of what each of you can, donate food. It cannot be accepted that right now there are more than two million children in Spain going hungry. Not this, not many other things, but that's another matter.
