NERJA Solidaria, the first food bank in Nerja, closes its doors after a decade of noble service. In 2014, recognising the pressing needs of numerous families in Nerja, Miguel Benítez and his colleagues founded Nerja Solidaria de Alimentos, the town’s first food bank. Over the past decade, crucial support from members, various associations, and the Nerja Town Council has enabled the organisation to supply essential food items to the municipality’s most vulnerable families.
