Throughout the year, families across the globe celebrate holidays and special occasions that mark the passage of time and uphold the cultures and traditions of their communities. Mothers and daughters are often at the center of these celebrations – planning and preparing family meals passed down by generations before them.

But for many women worldwide, keeping food on the table for themselves and their families has become more and more difficult.

Of the 364 million people who are severely hungry in the world today, nearly 60% of them are women and girls.

At The Global FoodBanking Network, we are working to ensure that women across the world have access to safe, nutritious food for themselves and their families.

By investing in GFN, you’re supporting food banks across six continents working hard every day to ensure that women and girls not only have the food security they need to survive, but the critical resources to thrive – today, tomorrow, and into the future.
