The concept of social care by the Red Cross is to place the family at the center of the interventions to ensure a holistic view of the needs and correctly define the interventions that will be applied.

Each family has a reference person with whom they establish a work plan, which functions as a contract of duties and rights, to establish the family's itinerary during the intervention. In this way, the family is receiving comprehensive care in relation to all their needs (health, work, housing, education ...).

In this sense, support for the family's food is one of many intervention tools that is provided, since food is a basic necessity and that, due to the economic and social vulnerability, it might be affected.


  • Distribute essential necessities to families that are vulnerable.
  • Provide food support cards so that families in vulnerable situations can buy food in nearby stores, in a normalized way, especially fresh.
  • Distribute fresh food
