Powering Communities for Zero Hunger
FY2020 Annual Report
Greetings from The Global FoodBanking Network.
In June 2019, The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) launched a strategic plan that updated our mission – to nourish the world’s hungry through uniting and advancing food banks – and committed to supporting local food banks in serving 50 million people facing hunger by 2030. Less than nine months after setting this goal, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and seemingly overnight demand for food relief skyrocketed. It is thanks to food bank efforts – made possible by partners like you – that millions of individuals and families have a place to turn for a nutritious meal.
It is more important than ever to invest in local organizations to make sure people have the food they need to survive now while building stronger, more resilient communities tomorrow. The effects of this pandemic have been heartbreaking, but the response of food banks in the 900+ communities worldwide – and the thousands of companies, individuals, and governments that are stepping up to enable their work – is reason to hope. Now, more than ever we need your partnership. I hope you will continue to join GFN to accelerate the food banking solution to help nourish the world.
With best regards,
President and CEO
The Global FoodBanking Network
