In this video, we will present an entity that develops a very important volunteer work within Mie Prefecture. Food Bank Tabunka Mie distributes many kinds of food, aiming to help citizens regardless of nationality.
The group who carries out this work is small, but the motivation is great. They are divided into groups and cover a number of regions in the prefecture, aiming to provide food to the families who seek help from the entity.
“This food bank work plays a role in helping people. Brazilian, Peruvian, Filipinoor Japanese, regardless of nationality, this work helps people to take the first step to become independent and be proud of it. Children, who see their parents working hard, feel encouraged to go to school and strive in studying; I believe this work helps to generate this strong tie between them”.
“At first the products are shipped from Nagoya. Then, they are distributed to a number of organizations who are also related to the Social Welfare Council, groups who give support to foreigners, schools, among others. After that, we carry out food selection and make the food reach the families who are in financial need, and we know who are in financial need. There are groups who take the food to the families and there are families who come here to pick up food. These groups are formed by foreigners, as well as Japanese. There are Japanese families who are in financial need, have no food to eat, and the groups give this support and make the food reaches them.
And the products are suitable for consumption and they are selected before the distribution.
“There is no problem with the content inside. But, as you can see, this can is smashed, the other one has the label torn, when is not related to the new design, the previous packaging become old- fashioned. Several products are thrown away even the expiration date is more than 1 month, and there is no problem with the food itself. These foodsare distributedto the families in need. This activity is of great necessity and importance because it helps families,as well as let them very happy.
For those who wish to receive foods from Food Bank Tabunka Mie, just get in touch and ask the representative or getthem in the stockroom when there is food distribution.
“The distribution is made every Saturdays from 2 pm at Tsu-shi, Higashi Marunouchi 13-16. We would appreciate if those who wish to get the food at our location get in touch in advance.
Food Bank Tabunka Mie’s goal is to help more and more the families who need this support.
