Food Packages

Hello. Yuji Shibata here.

Today I am going to introduce one of the activities carried out by 2HJ's Ishinomaki Project. 

Second Harvest Japan has been providing continuous support to those affected by the 3.11 disasters from the day that the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred until the present.

I visit the office of Food Bank Tohoku Again in Sendai every Friday to make food packages. The food packages made at Food Bank Tohoku Again are transported from Sendai to Ishinomaki by truck.
Approximately 12 to 14 different types of food items are included in the package, including items such as ready-made curry, spaghetti, emergency food supplies, beverages, seasonings and rice are packed together and given to those in need.

This time myself and two others worked together to make 96 packages for survivors and others in need.

Already more than 2 years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake, but more than 300,000 people across Japan are still living as evacuees.


We continue our efforts in hopes that such individuals will be able to acquire a sense of security and peace of mind, and return to their former lives even one day sooner.
