the essential
On Friday May 24 and Saturday May 25, the Gers Food Bank is organizing a food collection in the department to replenish the stock, with a target of harvesting 35 tonnes of products over these two days.

A new call for donations is launched throughout the department. The Gers Food Bank is organizing a food collection on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May 2024. This initiative is essential for the organization to replenish stocks after the national collection in November 2023.

This collection is taking place in a context where donations are decreasing and needs are increasing. Indeed, with the proliferation of “anti-waste” sections and their reduced prices, large and medium-sized stores have a reduced quantity of product to give away. However, until then, they remain the main suppliers of the Food Bank.

The generous Gersois

Nevertheless, the solidarity of the Gersois makes it possible to meet demand, although the annual distribution has reached its ceiling with 430 to 450 tonnes distributed. For the upcoming collection, more than 400 volunteers and around forty stores in the department are participating, with 15 trucks providing transport to the center of Auch.

Efforts should be focused on canned goods (meat, fish, fruit, vegetables), as well as oil, sugar, flour, pasta, chocolate, coffee and cakes. The “orange vests” aim to harvest 35 tonnes of food over these two days. Prepared for more than two months, this collection will rely, once again, on the generosity of the Gersois.
