The people of Geneva have responded overwhelmingly to the call for solidarity launched by Partage, our member in Switzerland, by shopping for the most disadvantaged on November 27 and 28.
The Food Bank collected 275 tons of food products and hygiene items, a sharp increase compared to November 2019 (+ 91 tons). The entire harvest will be stored and redistributed free of charge by Partage to some 50 charities and social services.
This magnificent result is excellent news for the Food Bank, which is in great demand in this time of crisis.
This collective effort was supported by the 1,400 volunteers who took turns from Friday to Saturday in the 90 or so participating food stores. Service clubs, associations, students and teachers, businesses and individuals, many of them gave of their time with great energy for this solidarity action.
