In the framework of the International Day for the Elimination of Poverty, the U.S. Embassy Youth Council in cooperation with Food Bank Albania organized a campaign to gather food during the 13th and 14th of October in Tirana across different markets.

Members and volunteers of the Youth Council during the days of the activity gathered about 820 kg of food, which translates to 2050 meals for the people in need.
The food collection campaign was made possible thanks to the help of volunteers who decided to join Council members over the weekend.

The eradication of hunger in the world is also one of the 17 UN sustainable development goals that are to be achieved within 2030.
