Clear the confusion about plastic recycling
Empowering the world to defeat hunger and change lives
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. Volunteers are crucial to their success and are needed all around the world, now more than ever, as we face the hunger challenges brought about by the pandemic. Contact your local food bank and find out about the many ways you can get involved, both in person and virtually.

It takes around 4 million hectares of land to grow the raw materials used in Unilever products. To ensure they are grown sustainably, we need to support the farmers who supply us as they make the shift to regenerative agriculture. But what does this mean and how will it work?
Deforestation is a driver of climate change. Lana Kristanto, sustainable sourcing specialist, explains how we’re working towards a deforestation-free supply chain and why protecting and regenerating nature is a key part of our climate strategy.
