The Belgian Federation of Food Banks is sounding the alarm: "The demand for food aid has increased by 15% since January, while donations are falling. This is why we are appealing for more donations to give people in need a warm Christmas through our action 'The Longest Christmas Table'. We are grateful that Bancontact Payconiq Company is joining us in facilitating donations at many Christmas markets. That way, we hope to be able to add as many Christmas meals to the table as possible this year!", says Jef Mottar, Deputy Director.
In this context, Bancontact Payconiq Company supports the Food Banks at different Christmas markets in Belgium. Visitors will be able to make a donation with their Payconiq by Bancontact app by simply scanning the QR code visible on the screens or advertising panels displayed at the following Christmas markets:
- Oostende Winter in het Park
- Gentse Winterfeesten
- Winter Bornemland
- Winterpret aan de Lei
- Chez Babette Nieuwpoort
- High Tea Tree house Nieuwpoort
- Hasselt – Winterland Hasselt
- Bruxelles– Plaisirs d'hiver
- Liège – Marché de Noël
If you are not able to visit the Christmas markets, you can also make an online donation by clicking on the link here.
We thank you and wish you a cosy end of year!
