The retail chain with the highest number of stores in Czechia has prepared a project that will help improve the situation of food banks in the next five months.
PENNY will help the Czech Federation of Food Banks with a central warehouse in Modletice, near Prague. This means an aid worth almost 11 million Kč over five years.
Through PENNY, 200 tons of aid has reached the central warehouse of the Czech Federation of Food Banks in the last two years.
From the beginning of 2018 until the end of April this year, PENNY alone delivered approximately 120 tonnes of aid to food banks.
Customers donated an additional 83 tonnes of aid to the collections through one of the 60 participating stores.
Donated products that help the most include soups, rice and legumes, pasta, baby food, canned food, long-life milk, oil and basic and children’s drugstores.
