You’ve heard the saying, charity begins at home and that’s a good place to start. No doubt you have seen the food banks in supermarkets collecting food for those in need. It’s a new challenge for us in Cyprus as for the first time, the downturn in the economy is beginning to impact on us. But it’s also part of a bigger picture with world food shortages becoming very real. So, remember; be conscious, be thrifty and support food recovery programs.
Go through your cabinets and shelves and donate any non-perishable canned and dried foods that you won’t be using to your nearest food bank or shelter. You can find collection points in some of the supermarkets including Alphamega, etc.
A growing number of people depend on these donations. Be green, don’t throw food away – give it to the needy and help make a positive impact instead
