Sandra García, the Andalucia delegate of the Spanish Government said of the distribution, “Now more than ever, of a program that seeks to provide a nutritional solution to many Andalusian families who do not have the necessary resources for it and that from the Government we try to alleviate as much as possible despite the pandemic”.
The two organizations will carry out the distribution through the 18 Storage and Distribution Centers (CAD) of the Andalusian community, and will include food baskets containing basic, varied, nutritious, and easily stored foods, such as rice, cooked beans, whole UHT milk, olive oil, canned tuna, canned sardine, canned meat, pasta, fried tomato, biscuits, vegetable salad, preserved fruit, chocolate shake and children’s fruit and chicken jars.
