The Food Bridge's annual Food Santa Campaign will run from 15th December to 31st December 2022.
The aim of this annual campaign, has always been to help families having financial difficulties, during the holiday season. With the increased cost of living due to recent global challenges, many working parents will struggle to have enough food for their families.
So we invite people, companies and associations in Belgium, to be a Food Santa by donating food packs to families in need. Donations can be a food pack for a family of two, four, six or above.
We have volunteers available for donations pickups across the country. If you do not have enough food for the festive season, you can also contact us too.All requests are treated with confidentiality .
