From 9 to 23 July, Aspen Italy’s 41 employees volunteered to assist the Associazione Banco Alimentare Onlus - Via Legnone in Milan for the second consecutive Mandela Day.

Their time at Banco Alimentare was spent sorting and packing surplus food products provided by the local food industry. This food is then redistributed to non-profit organisations in 13 regions across Italy to meet the needs of the impoverished. In this manner, Banco Alimentare feeds more than 103 000 people each year.
