2020.05.07 //

The Barceló Foundation, throught its Solidarity Food project, distributes 117 kgs of fish to soup kitchens in Majorca to enrich the diet of most-needed people in these hard times marked by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even the national alarm’ state and confinement decreed by the Spanish authorities, every week we’ve continue supllying basic products such as fruit, vegetables, tubers and meat to 10 charities with the appropriate health guidelines.

In addition, throughout the month of april, 58 kg of sea bream and 59 kg of sea sorell (typical Majorcan fish) were also distributed among entities that have a soup kitchen, which are tHermanitas de los Pobres, Es Refugi Association, Tardor Foundation and Ebenezer Maranata.

The Foundation’s weekly food donation is helping us to face the food crisis we are now experiencing, in which the request for help has doubled” – says Carol Senders from the Tardor Foundation – “the coronavirus has left needy families without any economic income, therefore, distributing quality products such as meat or fish is essential to enrich their diets amd promote their health“.

The ALISOL project was born in 2013 with the aim of providing food aid to people without resources on the island, supplying fresh products (fruits, vegetables, tubers, meat and fish) to different charities who distribute it to their users. In 2019, more than 155.000 kg were given, benefiting more than 6.600 people.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the collaborators of the project: Esplet, Francisco Barceló Ordinas, Quely, Salvador, Berlys, Rubiato Paredes, Barcelo Illetas Albatros, Al&Verd, Juan Cladera, Occidental Playa de Palma, Agroilla, Barcelo Sants Barcelona, Occidental Cala Viñas and, especially, OpMallorcaMar (company that distributes fishing in Mallorca). Thanks to their solidarity we’ve continue helping those most in-needed.
