14 million meals donated to people in need in Italy

The “Giornata Nazionale della Colletta Alimentare” celebrate its 25th year in 2021. 140,000 volunteers were present in 11,000 supermarkets across the country at the end of November.

About 7,000 tonnes of food were collected, the equivalent of 14 million meals, despite the difficult period and the inconveniences due to bad weather in many locations.

The amount collected will be redistributed in the coming weeks to approximately 7,600 charitable organisations that assist over 1.7 million people.

The collection continues online until 10 December on and on the website.
