Bus service increased to help more access Geneva food bank
It was another busy weekend for those handing out food parcels in Geneva.
Doors opened at around 8am on Saturday – some has been queuing since 4 that morning.
Public Transport officials increased the frequency of the bus which runs past the Vernets ice rink, which is being used as the distribution center.
This weekend, 731 new families had registered for parcels. One local politician, Omar Azzabi, says the new-comers seem to come from less well integrated communities that may have been unaware of the operation until now.
Throughout the day, nearly 3,000 bags were handed out – or 35 tonnes of food.
