Customers collected more than 95 tonnes of donations during the national non-perishable food collection campaign of the Magyar Élelmiszerbank Egyesület over the weekend, according to profitline.hu.
In each minute of the two-day drive, which took place in 200 Tesco and Aldi stores, donations for 18 food packages were collected.
The Food Bank will be able to support 19,000 needy people in the coming weeks from these products, the association said.
Almost 3,000 volunteers participated in the collaboration in 115 settlements of the country, asking customers to buy tinned food, pasta, or some other food item that does not require refrigeration so that in the coming weeks, they could be distributed among needy people living in the vicinity of the stores.
