  • Food Bank News


【Today is FoodBank day!】


November 23rd is “Labor thanksgiving day” in Japan and it is a public holiday. The date was originally harvest celebration day in Japan since Asuka Period (AC 592-710). Japan was agricultural country so the people celebrated the harvest and show appreciation to the food and to each other on this day.

As we announced, we are launching 1 month campaign from Today.
