Mataró Parc collaborates with a new collection of solidary food
Breakfasts and snacks with heart
Mataró Parc has collaborated once again with a new solidarity initiative for food collection. This is the "Breakfast and snacks with heart" campaign, promoted by the Cruz Roja with the companies of Auchan Holding. The objective is to fight against child poverty in Spain, a problem that thousands of children across the country suffer in their day to day. Therefore, the purpose is to mobilize society to reduce child poverty and inequality, facilitating a healthy and balanced diet for children who are in a vulnerable situation.
The campaign has been developed over the weekend of April 5 and 6. And the procedure followed by all those who have wanted to contribute their bit has been very simple: Cruz Roja has installed a collection point in front of Alcampo. The clients have given their products suitable for breakfast and for the snack to the volunteers. Finally, once the collection is completed, the Cruz Roja will distribute all these foods to children in difficult situations who participate in the Cruz Roja's successful school programs.
We can affirm that the collection in Mataró Parc has been a success. In the absence of knowing the final data for this year, it must be taken into account that between 2013 and 2018, 2,383,592 kg of food have been collected. That is, 7,994,608 breakfasts and snacks that have benefited 65,000 children belonging to families at risk of social exclusion. From here we want to thank the Cruz Roja to promote initiatives like these. Without forgetting the collaboration of all those who have visited Mataró Parc throughout this weekend and have made their contributions.
