A German food bank on Tuesday said it will reopen its doors to new migrant clients, some three months after its decision to stop giving free meals to foreigners sparked nationwide outrage.
The Essener Tafel charity in the western city of Essen said non-Germans could start registering for the service again from Wednesday.
"Right now, the ratio of Germans and foreigners in need is appropriate," the group's chairman, Joerg Sartor, told the Bild daily.
"If new bottlenecks occur, we will have to adapt again."
From now on, preference would be given to the elderly, single parents, young families and those with disabilities -- regardless of their nationality, Sartor added, citing a decision made by the group's board.
