FLAMENCO star Estrella Morente is the face behind a campaign which hopes to collect 150 tons of food in Malaga alone this weekend.

The singer will be joining thousands of volunteers coordinating food donations for the needy.

Morente will personally attend the collections in El Corte Ingles and Coviran stores in Granada, her home town, to show her support for the campaign.

“For me it is a dream to be part of something as important as helping others,” she said.

“We are living through humbling times, where people need to stick together, because unity is strength.”

The Malaga and Granada handouts are part of the Gran Recogida, a nationwide campaign to collect food on Friday (November 30) and Saturday (December 1).
