Many of our Food Bank Members are joining forces to support the people of Ukraine and the Food Banks most affected by the situation. This is the case of Food Bank Greece which is sending pallets products to the Food Banks in Romania.
In 20 days, 11,338 kilos of food and non-food products travelled from Greece to Romania in 4 batches. Donations include drinks, baby food, cereals, oil, rice, pasta, milk, soups, lentils but also shampoo, shower gel, baby wipes, etc. Read more here.
These donations are essential for the Federația Băncilor pentru Alimente din România which is supporting 85 charities and more than 5,000 Ukrainian refugees. The Romanian Federation of Food Banks also takes care of bringing some of the donated food to the Food Bank of Moldova and even to Chernivtsi in Ukraine.
