For the moment the organization of the food collection on 28 November – 6 December is planned as usual, with volunteers in stores but also with an online food collection.
The Federação Portuguesa dos Bancos alimentares contra a fome (FPBA) usually organizes a food collection in May. Due to the COVID-19 this year it was not possible to organize it in the traditional way (volunteers in the supermarkets inviting citizens to purchase food for the Food Bank). However, FPBA organized a food collection with vouchers with the result of 498 tons of food collected and an online food collection which resulted in 339 tons of food.
The winter collection was organized between 26 November and 13 December with volunteers in stores during the last weekend of November and with an online food collection via the website https://www.alimentestaideia.pt/.
