Food distribution and meals transition to normal – the distribution of emergency food bags ends

The distribution of emergency food bags during the emergency conditions will end at the beginning of August in week 33. As the distribution of emergency food bags ends, normal food aid and meals will be resumed. The distribution of emergency food bags was organised in cooperation between the Parish Union of Helsinki, the City of Helsinki and the Myllypuron elintarvikeapu food aid organisation.

The following lists show the changes and additions to known food distribution and meal locations. With the return to normal, there will be more food distribution and meal events.

The list will be updated as new food distribution and meal events are confirmed. Check ruoka-apu.fi for up-to-date information (in Finnish) ↗.
