More than 18 million of the most deprived persons in 19 Member States are to benefit from the Food Distribution Programme in the European Union. In the years 2012-2013, approximately one billion Euros will go to the poorest in the EU.
The Agriculture and Rural Development Committee of the European Parliament adopted, by a large majority, the recommendation of the Vice-Chairman of the Committee, Czesław Siekierski MEP, to continue the Food Distribution Programme for the most deprived persons in the European Union for the years 2012-2013.
The Food Distribution Programme was established in 1987 under the Common Agricultural Policy. In recent years, about 18 million Europeans have benefited from the programme via more than 240 food banks and charity organisations.
