Europastry adds its weight to the acts of solidarity in response to the coronavirus crisis
The company has been collaborating with different entities by donating products such as bread and pastries to healthcare workers, volunteers and nursing homes.
Europastry, a company specialising in frozen bread doughs, adds its weight to the fight against coronavirus by donating products to entities and organisations that are supporting the heroes of this crisis and the most vulnerable population groups.
All over the country, altruistic donations of Europastry's most representative bread, pastry and prepared foods have been reaching the groups that need them most ever since the State of Emergency was declared by the government.
One example is the work Europastry is doing with World Central Kitchen, the NGO led by Chef José Andrés, which is dedicated to serving food to people in need. Europastry has been collaborating with the project by donating its tuna empanadas, a product that the renowned chef is using as a very important main dish in the meals he is preparing.
Another example is its collaboration with the Food For Good BCN initiative led by Juan Manuel Umbert together with chefs such as Eva Hausmann. Thanks to this project, a network of chefs, restaurateurs, bar and restaurant owners, and suppliers has been set up with a common goal: to prepare healthy meals for all manner of social entities. In this project, Europastry is supplying basic foodstuffs such as bread, as well as sweet pastries such as Dots.
In its collaboration with healthcare workers and volunteers, Europastry is working with the Viena Capellanes group, which has moved its food trucks to the IFEMA convention centre in Madrid to offer free food to the people working in this temporary hospital. Europastry’s Dots are part of this act of solidarity every week.
Lastly, Europastry is also collaborating with public entities in its vicinity. This is the case of the municipal governments of Sarral and Valls, where two of its most important production plants are located. Thanks to this cooperation, the town halls are distributing the company's products to such entities as hospitals, nursing homes, civil protection workers, the local police, and also to NGOs such as the Red Cross and Caritas.
Europastry would like to express its deep appreciation to its customers and other organisations in the sector that have set up very meaningful projects, and it is proud to take part in and to collaborate with them from its speciality, food.
For Europastry, “these small gestures, on top of all the social mobilisation we are seeing these weeks, show that we live in a generous and caring country. These actions inspire us to continue doing our bit for society and to convey all our support and admiration to the people who are helping us through this situation”.
