THE SIXTH EDITION of the Gran Recogida foodbank collection saw a staggering 600,000 kilograms (600 tonnes) of food collected in Spain last weekend.
The initiative, organised by Bancosol, saw some 4,000 volunteers lend a helping hand at supermarkets across the country.
200,000 kilograms were collected on Friday, with the remainder being collected on Saturday.
Coming out on top in Malaga was Carrefour Los Patios and Carrefour Alameda.
Bancosol’s Vice-president and coordinator of the Gran Recogida Joaquin Jimenezdeclared this year’s campaign to be a “total success.”
The Bancosol foodbank helps a total of 49,000 people in the province of Malaga, through a number of different charities.
