Missão Continente delivers 150 tonnes of food

Missão Continente is finalizing the donation of 150 tonnes of food products to the Portuguese Red Cross (PRC) and to the Food Emergency Network, within the scope of the "Never Give Up" campaign. After the 75 tonnes of food delivered to PRC, the 75 tonnes of food destined for the Food Emergency Network are now arriving. The aim is to help the many families in need of support in this national emergency period.

Promoted by Missão Continente and the LAPS Foundation, the “Never Give Up” campaign, launched on April 10th, united the country around a solidarity movement that raised 639 thousand euros, to which Missão Continente added the donation of 150 tonnes of food products.

For Isabel Jonet, President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger, “Never give up is to never give up helping and never giving up bringing solidarity to the people in need’s table”.

The delivery of goods is now managed by the PRC and the Food Emergency Network, which will deliver goods such as milk, tuna, olive oil, beans, chickpeas, pasta, among others to vulnerable populations.

The donation is being audited by PWC consultant, an independent external entity, since the beginning of the campaign, as a guarantee for transparency of the process and its reliability.

Since the beginning of the new Coronavirus pandemic in Portugal, Missão Continente continues to express its support, through several institutions, to the most vulnerable populations as well as to Health Professionals and Civil Protection Agents.
