German food banks
Since 1998 Mercedes-Benz has been supporting an initiative to distribute overproduced or leftover food to needy persons: the food bank project.
Mercedes-Benz offers the food banks vans specially designed for their work. Among these are the Sprinter 313 CDI with box body, and the Vito 111 CDI.
Street football for a better start in life. Mercedes-Benz supports social programmes in South Africa.
The Go for Goals campaign combines the launch of the new Sprinter in 2006, the year of the Football World Cup, with a social sponsoring campaign and builds a bridge to the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa.
