The Mercadona company joins the Spring Kilo Operation organized by the Spanish Federation of Food Banks from May 30 to June 4. The distributor makes its points of sale available to the campaign for fundraising.
In Castilla y León, the 66 Mercadona stores participate, where customers can make monetary donations, a multiple of one euro, at the time of purchase when going through the checkout. The amounts donated will be transformed into food to be delivered to each of the participating Food Banks. Mercadona collaborates in this social initiative with the commitment to encourage customers to participate in this solidarity event.
So far this year, the company has donated 482 tons of food in Castilla y León and essential products to the 41 soup kitchens, food banks and other social entities with which it collaborates in the area, collects Ical.
This donation at the end of April is equivalent to more than 8,000 shopping carts.
