Take Action

Food banking is a proven solution for nourishing communities through dedicated and unified action. Join us in creating a global network of food banks that empowers the world to defeat hunger.

Argentina

Our grant to GFN member Red de Bancos de Alimentos Argentina allowed for the purchase of a new truck for Food Bank Tandil. This truck supports their Fruit and Vegetable Rescue Program, a program crucial to giving communities more nutritious food. Thanks to just one more truck, the Food Bank was able to double the delivery of fresh fruits and vegetables to 800 families.

Shanghai

To help reduce food waste in Shanghai, Eve Li was determined to start a food bank, but didn’t know where to start. After reaching out to GFN for guidance, Eve was invited to attend the Food Bank Leadership Institute, giving her invaluable training, education, and time with the GFN staff. Three months later, Eve launched the first food bank in Shanghai. Today, the Green Food Bank has grown to serve nearly 80,000 people.
