Attività Misericordia – Aiuto Alimentare

Food Aid is a service created to help people in need by supporting them with the free supply of essential food items. Those who do not have the opportunity to travel to the two distribution centers receive food at their homes. Over the years this service has grown to be the fundamental support for hundreds of families in the city.
