The ATIS (Worker’s Association of Velez-Malaga for Social Integration) solidarity diner has handed out more than 61,000 meals to the needy in its first year of existence.
According to Salvador Marin, head of the initiative, the exact number is 61,193 meals, all cooked and prepared in their own installations.
They have also distributed more than 28,000 kilos of fruit and vegetables since they first started in March 2013.
Marin said: “ATIS would like to thank the hundreds of friends and volunteers, among them many local companies and factories, which have made this project a reality with their contributions either in time or in products.”
Marin went on to comment that “we are fighting against those who are looting this country with their poor political decisions which provoke more poverty and suffering in the masses”.
The solidarity diner continues to service the needy from their location in the old ‘Bar Frias’ in Velez-Malaga.
