The food received through the Spanish Agricultural Guarantee Fund (FEGA) is for the second phase of the Food Aid Plan for disadvantaged people, Almeria Town Hall confirmed on Monday, October 3.
In the first phase, last April, around 870,000 kilos of food were distributed in Almeria.
The Food Bank also has the same amount of food at its disposal, which added together, reaches the record figure of 1.5 million kilos of basic and slightly perishable foodstuffs for this second phase. The purchase of this food amounts to almost €1.8M paid for entirely with European funds.
Jose Maria Martin confirmed: “This year, taking into account the impact on prices caused by the war in Ukraine and the shortage of many foodstuffs, the second phase of the Food Aid Programme distribution will have a record amount of food: more than one and a half million kilos at a cost of almost €1.8M.”
