FICBUEU and the Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank organize a food collection during the festival


You can donate during the two weeks that the event will last.

The Bueu International Film Festival and the Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank announce a new collaboration to carry out a food collection for the 15th edition, which will take place from September 11 to 24.

Different non-perishable products can be donated during the two weeks of the festival at the Centro Social del Mar, the main venue of the event, at the same time as the scheduled activities.

The items that are most often needed are milk, cocoa, cookies, oil and all kinds of preserves, although any donation is welcome. Another class of foods that are very useful in this type of initiative are those that are easy to store, those with a high nutritional density or those that can be consumed without prior preparation, as long as they are healthy.

In this way, and as in past editions, the FICBUEU will try to collaborate in the fight to reduce social inequalities, in line with the values and ideas that identify the organization, continuing and even expanding the work carried out in previous years.

In 2021, the year this collaboration began, the campaign was carried out only during the screenings of the Panorama Section. On this occasion, the organization extends the collection dates, including visits by schools during the week of the MiniFIC, with the intention of improving and increasing the number of food collected.

The Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank is one of the 54 organizations that belong to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL), an entity with more than 20 years of experience that aims to fight against hunger, poverty and waste of food through its correct use and distribution, also contributing to improving the environment. Thanks to their work, products are distributed among more than 7,000 charities and more than one million people.
