Five volunteers from Aspen's newly established office based in Verona, Italy, volunteered to support the Associazione Banco Alimentare on Mandela Day.

This non-profit organisation collects surplus product from the food industry and then, after sorting and packing it, redistributes it to non-profit organisations dedicated to meeting the needs of the impoverished.

The Aspen Italy team helped at the Banco Alimentare warehouse when they too checked and sorted food before packing it up for distribution.
