Bayern Munich donated €150,000 to help those who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The donation will go to the charitable organization, brotZeit eV, which works to help children in need by providing them meals.

“We are very happy that we are able to hand over this donation to ‘brotZeit’ together with Bavarian Minister-President Markus Söder,” said Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to “During this pandemic, it is the children who have had to suffer most due to contact restrictions and intervention in their usual normality. With this money, we want to support them at school so that they can always start the morning in optimistic mood and look to the future.”

Uschi Glas, Chair of ‘brotZeit eV’, was ecstatic to receive the financial assistance from Bayern Munich.

“Before the coronavirus pandemic, we provided 11,000 children in Germany with a nutritious school breakfast. Currently, we can provide for 4,200 children at 99 schools every day under strict hygiene regulations – that’s great,” said Glas. “In all 15 areas covered by ‘brotZeit’, the project management are working closely with the project schools locally and, as soon as the pandemic regulations permit, there will again be the same call for all brotZeit children every day: Children, breakfast!”
