Due to the health crisis caused by the expansion of COVID-19, the Cepsa Foundation, in order to agilely help in the fight against the most pressing effects of the pandemic, has responded to the urgent request launched by the Spanish Federation of Food Banks to respond to the urgent need for purchasing and distributing basic food stuff among the most disadvantaged groups.
