Mercadona Commits To Dairy Donation To Food Banks
Spanish retailer Mercadona has donated 13,500 litres of whole milk, under its own brand Hacendado, to a food bank serving the district of Tarragona.
The donation follows a collaboration agreement signed by both parties.
It follows a similar donation to the food bank serving Girona, and will be followed by future distributions to food banks serving Lleida and Barcelona.
Mercadona's aim is to donate around 100,000 litres of milk to food banks during 2019.
The partnership between Mercadona and the Catalan Federation of Food Banks began in 2010.
Commenting on the collaboration, the president of the Food Bank of Tarragona, Eusebio Alonso, said, "Once again Mercadona has shown its generosity and commitment to people most in need."
