Help empower food banks to thrive around the world
Creating healthy diets for a #ZeroHunger world
Across the globe, two billion people suffer from hidden hunger, and one in nine don’t get enough food to lead a healthy and active life. And yet, the world produces more than enough food to feed every person on the planet. So, what’s going wrong?
What can we do about it?
Hunger is often not a food problem; it’s a logistics problem. Food banks offer a simple solution – saving perfectly edible, nutritious food from landfill and redirecting it to people facing hunger and undernutrition.
We all want to see a zero-hunger world, but this depends on creating access to nutritious food – for everyone. Food banks in The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) serve 9.6 million people in over 40 countries, delivering an astonishing 503 million kilograms of food products to those who are hungry.
For World Food Day, it’s time to celebrate food banks across the globe and the vital role they play in offering nutrient-rich food options for those who would otherwise go without.
