In the province of Malaga alone, during 2020, Mercadona has donated a whopping 403 tonnes of products, collaborating with the Malaga Food Bank, the Malaga Red Cross, soup kitchens, and other charities.
Mercadona’s customers deserve some credit also, collaborated with the supermarket chain to donate 652 tonnes of food, mainly during the Great Collection in stores held from 16 to 22 November 2020.
The director of External Relations at Mercadona in Malaga, Paco Rodríguez, said, “The exceptional situation that we are experiencing requires agility in our decisions with a single objective, to do whatever is necessary to respond to the demands of the people most in need in this situation of extraordinary complexity”.
Mercadona has made a strong commitment in 2020 to aiding many disadvantaged groups throughout the region of Andalucía, by reinforcing its donation system by implementing new measures to guarantee both the safety of the people and of the supply to these organisations.
