Building Capacity

Offering Growing Food Banks the Tools to Flourish and Thrive 

GFN accelerates the impact of our network food banks by offering capacity-building programs to drive enhanced efficiency, accelerated scalability, and significantly increase nutritious food distribution. This is made possible by our team’s extensive knowledge of proven strategies for expanded scope and sustainable approaches to common food banking challenges in multiple countries. We also offer grants to aid food banks in these capacity-building efforts. This program continues to thrive and show astounding results in the fight against hunger. In FY17, GFN’s capacity-building grants program provided safe and nutritious food for more than 865,000 additional people. Although this is an incredible feat, we will not be satisfied until our world is free from hunger. We will continue to increase capacity for food banks in the most viable ways possible.

“GFN’s role in the fight against hunger in the UK has been truly extraordinary. GFN’s support has been instrumental in enabling our expansion and providing more food to people who need it.”
