In Zaporizhzhia, at the second All-Ukrainian Conservation Festival, a new record of our country was set: “The greatest weight of home-made fruit and vegetable conservation collected for charitable purposes during one event in one location”. The holiday took place as a result of the victory of the initiative group of the festival’s project in the competition “We are a city”, which is annually held by “Zaporizhstal” Steel Works.

The weight of the presented and collected conservation (excluding honey) exceeded 1 762 kg. This amount included more than 270 kilograms of cabbage, which was shredded by the participants on the first day of the festival.

Anyone could take part in the festival – Zaporizhzhia citizens or the guests of the city. It was enough to bring their own conservation, take part in thematic competitions and master classes. All conservation will be sent to the ATO zone for our defenders, as well as to the military hospitals of Zaporizhzhia and Mariupol.

– For the second year in a row we are the winners of the social projects’ competition “We are a city”, which was initiated by “Zaporizhstal” Steel Works, – said the provider of the festival, the head of non-governmental organization “Zaporizhzhia flair” Natalia Babenko. – The masters of conservation from Truskavets, Kiev and Melitopol, as well as many visitors from other cities of Ukraine came to us. Please note that in 2016 we gather a record number of participants.

“Zaporizhstal” Steel Works allocated about UAH 100 000 for the implementation of this project within the framework of the competition “We are a city”.
