On World Food Day 2020, The Global FoodBanking Network recognized and celebrated the essential work performed by food banks around the world. The effects of COVID-19 caused ever increasing numbers of people to be food insecure. In all regions of the world, food banks provide support to those suffering from hunger. During COVID-19 those food banks have responded, innovated, and worked tirelessly to dramatically scale their operations and provide support to many more people.
Watch this unique event to discover the impact of food banks and hear directly from food bank leaders from different areas of the globe and learn about the work they do and the challenges they face.
