Past Campaigns

“Indigenous Populations know the solutions.” How can we advocate for them?

Food banks are relentlessly creative in their commitment to reaching remote groups, especially during these difficult times. In honor of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, commemorated on 9 August, we highlighted some of the unique ways that food banks are serving these communities with nutritious foods.

“We thought we knew poverty. We were not ready for this.”

On 12 March – the day the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic – Ana Catalina Suarez Peña was in São Paulo, working with longtime GFN member Mesa Brasil Sesc. “The first emotion that this situation gave me was fear,” Ana said. “Something is going to happen, but you don’t know what.” She immediately returned home to Bogotá. Four days later the borders closed.
