10 million meals donated for the 3rd international food bank collection campaign coordinated by the Carrefour Foundation

Boulogne-Billancourt, FRANCE, 2016-Feb-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — 10 million meals donated in 10 countries for this 3rd international food bank collection campaign coordinated by the Carrefour Foundation, with support from the European Food Bank Federation and the Global FoodBanking Network.

Last year, from October to December, from Beijing to São Paulo, customers, volunteers and employees from the various countries in which Carrefour operates helped collect nearly 4953 tonnes of foodstuffs. They then redistributed the equivalent of 10 million meals – all as part of the 3rd international collection campaign.

Over 1400 Carrefour volunteers lent a helping hand to Food Bank volunteers in more than 2217 stores across 10 countries: Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Spain, France, Italy, Poland, Romania, China and Taiwan.

Well done to the Carrefour teams who were part of this wave of generosity which will help society’s poorest people.

And thank you to all the customers who worked alongside them as part of this aid initiative!
