Food bank

Algarve’s Food Bank (Banco Alimentar Contra a Fome) will be collecting at Portimão Continente hypermarket tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday.

The aim is to boost the food bank stocks in order to provide a better response to requests for support.

The food bank collects and distributes thousands of tonnes of food products and supports the activities of more than 1,400 institutions in Portugal.

These institutions prepare meals and distribute food baskets to people in need, serving around 216,000 people in the country.
