A successful spring food collection for the Czech Food Banks

The spring food collection was organized by the Czech Federation of Food Banks in April in Czech Republic. 8 market chains and one drugstore were involved, with 800 stores around the country.

Donors also had the possibility to make online donations via the online shops.

Despite a difficult pandemic situation with strict rules for volunteers and shops, a total of 450 tons of food and hygiene products were collected and will help more than 160,000 people in need, especially single parents, elderly people or young families who are in need because of the pandemic.
