Over fifty pallets of food were delivered to the Estonian Food Bank by charity project Circle of Kindness (Headusering) which will be given to people in need across the country.
The consignment included canned food, jams, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces, and other food products from Salvest, with a total value of €60,000. The food will be distributed to those in need in the coming months, and will be added to at least 30,000 food parcels, which last one family for a week.
Horizon Bag, a part of Horizon Tselluloosi and Paberi AS, operating in Kehra, Harju County, donated 100,000 craft paper carrier bags for assembling food packages.
Indrek Kaing, a member of the board of Padma Devi Foundation MTÜ, the charity behind Headusering, said: "Headusering works to ensure that Estonian companies support Food Bank. With the money raised, we procure a large amount of food directly from Estonian producers, which the Food Bank can distribute to those in need."
The aim of the charity project Headusering, which launched in April this year, is to raise money for the Food Bank and provide support in managing the donations. Headusering wants to be an example and inspiration for making donations to other entrepreneurs as well.
Padma Devi Foundation MTÜ is a charity set up in 2002 by the entrepreneur Sonny Aswani; the foundation is named after his mother, Padma Devi. Along with Aswani and Kaing, the foundation's operations are managed by Eva Maran and Sirli Väinsar. In April this year, the fund allocated €25,000 to support the Food Bank through Headusering.
