Grafo once again collaborates with the Food Bank

Grafo is once again collaborating with the Biscay Food Bank in the food collection campaign which will take place on 28 and 29 November 2014 in the supermarkets and shopping centres of Biscay’s main food distribution chains.

The extraordinary work of the Food Banks in their fight against the hunger and poverty faced by the most disadvantaged has earned them the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord 2012.
