Every year, around end of November/early December many FEBA members organize their national food collections in collaboration with retailers.
While raising public awareness about the activity of Food Banks and food poverty in their country, food collections enable Food Banks to get food which they usually do not receive as surplus and thus to complement the range of nutritious products they can redistribute to charities. These food collections are only made possible by the collaboration of thousands of supermarkets and retailers and by the mobilization of thousands of volunteers who inform and encourage customers to buy and donate products to the Food Banks.
Looking at France, Italy, Portugal and Spain, thousands of volunteers during one or two days managed to receive about 42,500 tons of food!
A big thank you to all the volunteers and all those citizens who decided to donate something to Food Banks!
