The Food Banks in Romania are still very active to help the refugees fleeing from Ukraine as well as the Ukrainian Food Bank.
Until now, approximately 112 tons of food were collected at national level, from which more than 80 tons were sent to the Ukrainian Food Bank and other partners, while more than 30 tons were used to support the partner 75 NGOs from Romania that take care of over 5,000 refugees coming from Ukraine
In order to keep fulfilling their mission, the Food Banks are running a campaign with the main partners from the retail industry: 110 Lidl stores, 50 Kaufland stores, 40 Auchan stores and 12 Selgros stores.
Thanks to the support of Lidl Romania and other local companies (Caroli Foods, Danone etc), the Food Banks were able to send 3 trucks with food and non-food products as well as several vans in Ukraine, either at the Ukrainian Food Bank or at the Caritas Cernauti Association.
The wave of solidarity coming from the FEBA members in Europe is also very important. The Greek Food Bank sent 2 trucks of food and hygiene products (read more about it here). Next week, the Food Banks in Romania are expecting donations from France, Spain, as well as 4 trucks coming from the UK and donated by Kellogg Company.
