ZAEV Food Bank

Within the framework of the "ZAEV Food Bank" by collecting surplus food, their storage and distribution to socially disadvantaged categories of citizens in the fight against poverty and hunger. The implementation of the activities in this program will be in coordination with the activities of the "ZAEV Program for raising public health awareness", with the planned realization of:

  • Celebrating World Food Day on 16 October, to mark the anniversary of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and celebrating International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on 17 October, declared by the United Nations General Assembly. By marking these days through this program of activities aimed at developing solutions in society, we will join the activities to achieve the Zero Hunger by 2030, as encouraged by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. One of the previously mentioned solutions will be the implementation of the concept of "Community Fridges" at certain locations in the municipality of Strumica (urban/rural areas). The "Community Fridges" will store food/beverages from the market surplus (will be available to all food producers, distributors, traders and caterers who want to donate their market surplus food/beverages), as well as available to all citizens who want to donate food or leftovers from their meals/drinks daily.
  • Celebrating Sustainable Gastronomy Day on June 18, through the realization of activities with a focus on the importance of consuming healthy food. Having in mind that the municipality of Strumica has the soil and climate advantages for competitive agricultural production, promotional stands with healthy food will be opened. With the opening of these promotional stands, access to locally produced and fresh food by family farmers will be provided, where the local farmers themselves will be present for the promotion and sale of their products.
