Since the beginning of the COVID-19 health crisis in Spain and the State of Emergency announcement on 15 March, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have provided thousands of hours serving in different organizations and humanitarian projects in their cities and towns to alleviate the needs for sanitary materials and protective equipment.

Along with the health crisis caused by the pandemic, the country faced economic and social problems⁠—the effects of which will be seen in many Spanish families in the coming months. The rising concerns for food security brought the attention of local Church leaders to reach out to several food banks in need to receive donations for food and other basic necessities.

The Church of Jesus Christ, through its humanitarian arm, Latter-day Saint Charities, has made financial donations to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks which operates 54 food banks nationwide. The donation will benefit thousands of Spanish families from the marginal neighborhoods of large cities to the smallest rural areas in Spain.

Globally, COVID-19 has become the largest humanitarian aid project of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with more than 500 service projects carried out in over 150 countries.
