153 Izegem families receive an extra food package. The city of Izegem and De Stamper Food Bank receive financial support from the federal government for this.

Federal government support
“Through this food distribution, we can provide additional food for 153 families from Izegem, consisting of 197 adults and 123 children,” explains Alderman from Welsijn aan van Esch.
De Stamper provides free food to those struggling financially. The parcels are usually distributed monthly, but the city provides every now and then an additional parcel. The additional food parcels are thanks to financial support from the federal government.
“The federal government provides a budget of € 3,324 for each additional distribution to Izegem. This amount goes entirely to food, Alderman van Esch explains. It is indeed the third time that the city has made this extra distribution. Another additional distribution is scheduled for mid-May.
