Donating food after congress cancellation
MCI Brussels donated food to local charities after a congress was cancelled.
Mid-March 2020, MCI Brussels got one of its client’s congresses cancelled 12 hours before the opening of the event due to Covid-19. This means catering orders were already produced for the following day.
Therefore, they teamed up with two local NGOs to donate all the congress food that would have been lost otherwise: two buckets of fruits, approx. 2,000 sandwiches and the entire gala dinner buffet for 150 guests.
The charities were extremely grateful and more than happy to collect the goods. We never wish to see our event cancelled. But when it does happen, it is up to us to make the best of our resources to benefit others!
