Colruyt Group supports the Christmas action Everyone Food bank
This Christmas, prepare a little more for less fortunate people ... and turn your home into a temporary food bank! A warm appeal of The Belgian Federation of Food banks, which we at Colruyt Group want to support. Indeed, everyone deserves to enjoy a delicious meal on Christmas eve.
Organise your own food bank
For most of us, Christmas eve is conviviality as well as delicious food and drinks. Unfortunately, not everyone gets this opportunity. The Belgian Federation of Food banks wants to do something about that with the "Everyone Food bank" initiative. We support this action with all our heart and launch an appeal to you to organise such a 'food bank' in your home on Christmas eve. Prepare a few extra portions for a single person or a family near you. In this way, you can contribute to a nice Christmas for less fortunate people.
A concrete, warm and simple gesture
"Everyone Food bank" is an ideal initiative to bring light in these dark days, with a concrete, warm and simple gesture. As volunteer chef, proceed as follows: register at iedereenvoedselbank.be and choose one or several people in your neighbourhood for whom you want to prepare a Christmas diner. Share your menu and make arrangements for pick-up or delivery. It is possible on 24 December, or earlier.
Would you like to receive a Christmas meal? Register at your food bank or at iedereenvoedselbank.be/kerstmaal.
