Invest in a world where no one goes hungry

The issue

Currently, 690 million people are chronically undernourished. The world produces more than enough food to feed every person on the planet, and yet more than 3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted annually.

What can we do about it?

Hunger is a complex, but solvable problem. 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.

But they can’t do this alone. Support the Friends of Food Banking community, by giving a monthly donation and pledging to invest in a future without hunger.

Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and World Food Day, your support will help to strengthen the vision to end hunger by 2030. With your investment, we’re one step closer to seeing that vision come to life.
