To whom food support is given
The help of the Food Bank is meant to support families and people who have financial problems and during a short or longer period cannot get by. The help is free of charge and in principle temporary.
Only people living below the subsistence level can receive assistance from the Food Bank. In Estonia there are thousands of people who need food support. However, the Food Bank does not have enough food to support all these families. Therefore, it was decided to cooporate with social departements - they help to choose the families.
The privacy of the people who receive the food help is guarded and their data will not be given to other people. The Food Bank and others, who are involved in the food help, commit themselves to strictly follow this rule.
