A solidarity gastronomic initiative to raise our awareness
It is clear that each of us can donate much more than 1 euro. But just by adding this small donation to the account Tapas por la Paz, not only shows the most supportive side of Spanish gastronomy, but also raises awareness of the situation. It is an initiative that is the beginning of something. A way to normalize the donation of money and to remind us that while we are enjoying a good meal, there are others who need our help to eat.
