Fira Montjuïc is the centre for receiving food donations

Fira de Barcelona joins the Banc dels Aliments campaign

Fira de Barcelona, for the second time, joins the campaign 'Hunger Doesn't Go on Holiday', launched by the Banc dels Aliments to help those most in need during the summer. In line with its corporate social responsibility policy, the institution has given over Hall 1 of the Montjuïc site to the collection of donations from 6 to 10 July.

Basic foodstuffs are needed, such as rice, pasta, pulses, oil and milk, which will be distributed to over 250,000 beneficiaries this summer.  
Those who would like to collaborate can bring their food donations directly to Hall 1, Montjuïc, where last year 960 kilos of foodstuffs were collected, or go through the different activities organised by collaborating entities, companies and institutions.

Over 20% of the population of Catalonia lives below the poverty line, a risk situation that is exacerbated in the summer when school canteens are closed and the number of food donations drops.
