SPAR in Spain support many initiatives on an ongoing basis; here we highlight two recent programmes which were supported by partners.

Approximately 350,000 children in Spain are considered to be in need of supplementary nutrition to meet their daily needs. One programme focused on meeting this need is the Food Bank which has an annual national appeal for the donation of milk. SPAR Gran Canaria contributed one pallet of long-life milk recently to this very worthy cause, just one part of their ongoing annual support for the Food Bank and other similar programmes.

SPAR Spain suported the AFIS Pediatric Programme which addresses childhood obesity, combining physical activity in groups, nutritional education and focuses on both individual and family behavior, aiming to normalise the Body Mass Index (BMI) of children.
