The 27th National Food Collection Day will take place on November 18th, organized by the Fondazione Banco Alimentare. This initiative aims to collect non-perishable food items to be donated to those in need. Despite recent controversies surrounding some affiliated associations, the president of Banco Alimentare della Sicilia occidentale, Santo Giordano, emphasizes the importance of continuing to support those in need. In Sicily, over 10,000 volunteers will participate in the event, collecting donations at supermarkets. The most needed items include oil, canned vegetables, tomato pulp, tuna, and baby food. The goal is to raise awareness about poverty and encourage the community to contribute. Those interested in volunteering can sign up on the Banco Alimentare website. Overall, the initiative seeks to provide tangible help to those struggling with food insecurity and promote the values of sharing and charity in society.
