“WSS EFFECT” ON A MEETING IN THE PARLIAMENT
On October 18, 2018, prior to meeting with the prime-minister Zoran Zaev, “WSS Effect” team, the secretary general of European Food Banks Federation (FEBA) including, few representatives of the informal Coalition against Hunger and Food Waste met with Mr Goran Misovski, a vice-president of the National Parliament. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the possibility for better national legislation which will stimulate less food waste and more edible surplus food to be redistributed, safely, to the poor and needy people and communities in the country. During the meeting, Mr Misovski expressed his support to the existing foodbanking system in the country and showed his undoubted interest in the WSS Effect initiative for better food aid and food waste policies and programs in the country.
The small delegation of civil society organisations consisted of representatives of Association “Food for All – Food Bank MK”, FEBA, Eurohuman International MK and Association DRITA AGV Gostivar. According to the initial idea, the meeting was supposed to be held with the President of the Parliament, Mr Talad Xhaferi. Nevertheless, due to the political situation -the voting for constitutional change which was scheduled for the next day- the delegation was received by Mr Misovski.
