The FC Barcelona Foundation and the Food Bank Foundation work together to alleviate food deprivation in Catalonia
The results of this understanding have been to undertake various activities of collecting food, including the Campaign ‘Enviem la fam a la porra’ (‘Let’s send huger packing’).
This campaign stems from the sensitivity of the FC Barcelona Foundation with the problems that Catalan society faces. Catalonia has more than one million people living below the poverty line and the Food Bank has tripled their beneficiaries in recent years. This trend demonstrates the need to strengthen capabilities for collection and collaboration with this entity so it can continue its important social work.
