Isabel Jonet acknowledged, this Saturday, that there has been an increase in requests for help through the Emergency Food Network and Food Banks, as a result of the increase in food and energy prices that has been felt.

After speaking at the honor engagement ceremony of the newly enrolled dentists, at the Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB), in Lisbon, the president of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger told the JN that private social solidarity institutions (IPSS) are feeling the impact of inflation in their activity.

“The institutions that have home, day care, and day care center responses feel the increase in prices in the execution of their activity but also in the activity that they provide to support the needy population,” he told JN.

Isabel Jonet also alerted to the fact that the prices of the most basic foodstuffs are those that have risen the most and that, therefore, “the lowest income families have difficulty in accommodating this increase in inflation.

“We are living today in very difficult times, perhaps even more difficult than at the beginning of the pandemic,” lamented the president of ENTRAJUDA in her speech at the ceremony, arguing that the intervention of civil society is essential. For Isabel Jonet, “each one of us can make a difference”.
