The food help in the emergency conditions is organised by the city of Helsinki, the parish union and Myllypuro food help.

The Myllypuro food distribution service, the community lunches offered by the parishes and many other Helsinki-based food distribution services have closed until further notice due to the coronavirus. Compensatory food aid in the form of ready-made bags are distributed daily in different parts of the city, in order to ensure the availability of the essential food aid even in emergency conditions.
