Dig deep to defeat hunger and change lives worldwide
Each year, 3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted, while one in four people are malnourished. But hunger is often not a food problem; it’s a logistics problem. Approximately 15–30% of food in emerging economies is wasted.
What can we do about it?
Food banking systems offer a simple solution. They capture surplus food and deliver it to the people who need it most.
The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) is an international non-profit that works towards a hunger-free future in more than 40 countries. It does this by sustaining, uniting and strengthening food banks.
A food bank operating alone can alleviate hunger in a small, yet mighty way. But a food bank connected to GFN can make more of an impact by scaling faster and operating more efficiently. GFN offers expertise, resources and connections that give food banks what they need to become leaders in their community.
But they can’t do this alone. They desperately need funding to continue to help global food banks to evolve and thrive. Please donate what you can today to join GFN in empowering the world to fight hunger through food banking.
