Fifth national food collection held in Czech Republic

The fifth national food collection is held around the Czech Republic on Saturday. Sone 750 shops, including stores owned by major chains, take part in the event in which members of the public can donate non-perishable foodstuffs that will then be redistributed to those in need. The campaign is organised by a corporate responsibility platform Business for Society, along with other NGOs. Last year, some 312 tonnes of food were donated.
