About The Global FoodBanking Network
Founded in 2006, The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) is an international development organization that works to alleviate hunger through food banking. Its mission is to start food banks in communities where they are needed and to support those where they already exist. Its vision is a thriving network of food banks that nourish the world.
Food banking began in 1967 in the United States and has flourished as a community-based model to redistribute edible food that would otherwise go to waste to those facing hunger. This model is now being carried out at a national scale in the US and throughout Europe, and with GFN’s help, increasingly in emerging markets.
GFN directly serves food banks in more than 30 countries in Central and South America, Asia, Australia, and limitedly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, it achieves its mission through five primary offerings to the food banks it directly serves:
• It partners with local leaders to launch food banks in communities where they are both needed and feasible;
• It invests in food banking organizations through training, technical assistance, programming, and grants to support their effectiveness;
• It forges partnerships... with leading multinational donors to increase investment, product donations, and employee engagement in both GFN and food banks around the world;
• It offers best practice sharing to food bank leaders; and
• It sets and enforces global standards for food bank operations to both strengthen organizations and enable multinational investment from donors of product and funds in a trusted network.
