The association Die Muenchner Tafel e.V. once again receives the joint Christmas donation of 26,000 euros from TDK Electronics, TDK Europe and TDK Management Services. Every week, the volunteers distribute food donations to people in urgent need. TDK's donation will support 333 guests for one year as part of the host campaign.
“Poverty can affect anyone. We help.” Under this motto, the Muenchner Tafel association has been supporting people in need with food for more than 25 years. Today, 700 volunteers are working to provide around 22,000 people with more than 125,000 kilos of food free of charge every week.
“People come to us who have lost the ground under their feet after severe strokes of bad luck, single parents, families with many children, the unemployed, the sick, pensioners,” says the association's chairperson Hannelore Kiethe. “The food we distribute is of perfectly good quality. Most donations come from overproduction, have typing errors on the label or have damaged outer packaging.”
