The first issuing office of a food bank in Žilina Region and the fourth one in all of Slovakia opened in Ružomberok on Thursday, July 7, the SITA newswire was informed by Ružomberok’s vice-mayor Stanislav Bella. The issuing station will create a job for a handicapped employee.

“The food bank will prevent the waste of food and also help people who need it,” said Bella. “We acquire free foodstuffs from producers, growers and retailers and dispense them at no cost. Currently, through sophisticated logistics, we can acquire goods just before the expiry date.”

Food bank representative Marko Urdzík explained to SITA. “Over three months the work at the Ružomberok facility, costs will exceed €10,000. Half of that amount will come from the town, the rest from sponsors, the Labour Office and the ByPo company.” Food and soap powder will also be available at no charge.
