Our journey towards a future free of hunger

The issue

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.

What can we do about it?

Food banks around the world serve approximately 60 million hungry people. They are working tirelessly and collaboratively to end hunger by 2030 by capturing surplus food and delivering it to the people who need it most.

A crucial part of this mission is to increase education and raise awareness of the role and impact of food banks. Research by The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) is driving this forward with its report, The State of Global Food Banking.

As the first series of studies to survey the landscape and impact of food banks globally, the report serves as an almanac of food banking. It provides valuable insights and demonstrates the effectiveness of the food banking model as a grassroots, community-led hunger intervention.

Download the report today to learn more about the role that food banks play in our journey to a hunger-free future.
