Last year, The Global FoodBanking Network celebrated its 10 year anniversary by serving 6.8 million hungry people. With your help, we can nourish even more in 2017.

For every $1 you donate to GFN, our network can provide 15 meals to people in need.* Qualifying gifts can provide 30 meals through June 30th, 2017.

Please join us in creating a world where no one has to go without a nutritious meal.

The Global FoodBanking Network is a 501(c)3 charitable organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service in the United States of America; contributions are tax-deductibile to the extent allowed by US law. Tax deductibility outside of the US is dependent on local tax regulations. GFN’s Tax ID number (EIN) is: 20-4268851

*The mission of The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) is to start food banks where they are needed and to support food banks where they exist. To estimate the number of meals delivered for every US$1 invested in The Global FoodBanking Network, our team:

  • Calculated the number of meals provided through GFN’s capacity building and food sourcing programs, based on impact assessments provided by the food banking organizations served;
  • Determined that funds invested in GFN training and education offerings were budget relieving for food banking organizations served.  This determination was based on a 2015 independent assessment that found that food banks regularly engaged with GFN’s training and education programming distributed meals much more quickly than those that were not.  Although the assessment found that there was a leverage effect through investing in training and education, this calculation only assumes dollar-for-dollar budget relief to be conservative.

This value estimate is based on FY16 data and will be updated in years to come.  For questions or further information, please contact
