This is the value of food products donated during a Food Bank campaign, the organization said in a press release.

Organizers said the record-setting sum was due to increase in prices of the products that Lithuanians mainly donate to the campaign. As compared with earlier years, more money was paid for donated cereals, pasta, flour or oil.

Over 130,000 donations were collected during the two-day campaign in 72 cities and towns across the country.
