Nearly 230 tonnes of foodstuffs donated in national food collection

Some 228 tonnes of foodstuffs was donated during the Czech Republic’s third national food collection on Saturday, organisers have said. Over 470 shops, including stores owned by major chains, took part in the drive in which members of the public donated non-perishable foodstuffs for redistribution to the needy. Around 2,000 volunteers and shop staff took part in the collection.
