Banca pentru Alimente is organizing its Christmas food collection with Lidl Romania from 7 to 20 December. The collection in the stores partners is very important because it is the only occasion for individuals to donate food via Food Banks to the people in need.
The products that can be donated by customers are flagged in the shelfs of the participating Lidl stores and special boxes can be found at the stores’ exit, in which citizens can drop the donated products. This food which is part of non-perishable categories is not demanding a special storage temperature, such as: basic food (oil, flour, sugar, rice and baking ingredients), canned vegetables, canned meat, canned fruits, pasta, sauces, UHT milk, packed pastry products, biscuits, coffee, tea, jam.
In 2019, the network of Food Banks from Romania organized the pilot edition of the food collection campaign, in partnership with Lidl Romania. In 2020, the campaign will take place in 80 Lidl stores in Bucharest and Ilfov.
