The Global FoodBanking Network has close working relationships with several regional networks of food banks, specifically the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA), Feeding America (FA), and the Middle East / North Africa Food Banking Regional Network (MENAFBRN).  These food banking networks each have a unique role in the support and promotion of food banking in their respective regions – FEBA serving Europe (with food banking currently operating in 18 of the 27 Member States of the European Union and 3 Non-Member States), Feeding America serving all of the United States and Puerto Rico, and MENARFBA serving the Middle East and Northern Africa, as well as Pakistan.

GFN works to support established food bank systems or help develop food bank systems throughout the rest of the world.

GFN shares with these partners a common mission to alleviate hunger and reduce food waste via food banking, and we collaborate with these networks to share best practices, mobilize resources, and promote our mutual interests in seeing a world free from hunger.
