The Albanian Food Bank due to the Covid-19 emergency is working intensively to be close to the families in need. With funds and donations so far, they are collecting and distributing even more food. However, it should be noted that, over the past two weeks, aid requests have almost doubled. They have supported and continue to support families affected by the earthquake; however, the current crisis is a challenge to the capacity of any organization, or any institution.
They ask for help so that they can continue to work to help families who need our support.
Food Banks across Europe are redirecting food waste to the needy.
COVID-19 has shown that it can affect anyone, but statistics also show that the most affected strata are the most vulnerable strata of society as well as the poorest economically.
Pandemics are closely related to social wounds such as hunger. For this reason, during the last two weeks Food Bank Albania has distributed more than 1000 food packages in cooperation with state institutions such as the Municipality of Tirana, Social Service in Shkodra, Social Service in Elbasan, Mirdita Prefecture and all other local organizations supported.
