Munich (dpa/lby) - At a meeting with representatives of the Tafel in Munich, Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) paid tribute to the work of the charity initiatives on Wednesday. In times when many people do not know how the high energy and food prices will continue, they make an indispensable contribution, said Söder. "We should particularly support that as a state."
The so-called food banks collect food that cannot be sold in supermarkets in time, for example, and pass it on to socially and economically disadvantaged people. According to the state association, around 7,000 volunteers are involved in 174 Bavarian food banks.
