Food Bank celebrated its second year this weekend with a two-day food drive at Prisma supermarkets in Tallinn, Tartu and Narva.

This time the nonprofit collected 12,996 units of food – mainly macaroni, soup, canned food and sweets – for struggling families with children.

“We are glad to see that every time there is one or two organizations or companies that join our volunteer base, in order to do something product outside of work,” said Food Bank representative Ines Jakobson. “Grade school students are welcome to join as well.“

The charity was founded by Piet Boerefijn, a Dutch native who was named person of the year in 2010.
