Bread of the Hungarians – Magyarok kenyere program
Bread of the Hungarians – Magyarok kenyere program

This year marks the 10th anniversary of this program through which farmers donate a part of their wheat crop to bake bread for those in need. In 2010, the year the program was introduced, 10 tons of wheat was donated. This year, some 800 tons were donated by 6,000 farmers in the Carpathian Basin.

For the meaning of this rovás sign, see the story.
