National Food Collection underway

People can donate food and basic hygiene products for the needy on Saturday within the National Food Collection.

Shops and supermarket chains around the country have joined the collection in aid of charity which is especially important this year because due to the coronavirus pandemic food banks are running out of supplies.

The situation is reported to be worst in Prague and the northern regions, where an increasing number of people are asking for help in securing basic food supplies.

In most shops goods are being collected by volunteers between 8am and 6pm. People can also donate products bought online.
