The Spanish Food Banks estimate that during the pandemic demand has increased by 50% compared to the same dates in the previous year. In order to face this challenge, many companies decided to help the Food Banks, just like CaixaBank.
The solidarity action "Ningún Hogar Sin Alimentos" (“No home without food”), promoted by the La Caixa Foundation, with the operational support of CaixaBank, closes with a total of 3.3 million euros raised for the benefit of the Spanish Food Banks.
