Our corporate and foundation partners provide funding and food to support member food banks’ vision for food security in their communities.
Managing Director, Global Nutrition Security, The Rockefeller Foundation
Today, millions of families across the world are struggling to put food on the table, while one-third of all food is lost or wasted. Food banks are needed now more than ever. We are thrilled to support The Global FoodBanking Network in its efforts to increase food access for people facing hunger in the short-term, while building longer-term community resilience. Together, we are pursuing our common objective of nourishing the world’s hungry.

The Global Methane Hub
The work GFN is undertaking is pivotal in promoting methane mitigation through food loss prevention, recovery, and redistribution. We believe that the methodology and technologies being piloted in food banks for measuring methane mitigation will serve as a catalyst for promoting new policies and economic assessments of food banks’ financial models. This collaboration will demonstrate that food loss and waste recovery and redistribution are cost-effective solutions that must be harnessed to address methane mitigation.
