The Global FoodBanking Network

Chicago , IL, USA mdi-circle-small


The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) envisions a world where people facing hunger can reliably access nutritious meals through food banking, one of the most promising, community-based solutions to hunger. Our mission is to nourish the world’s hungry through uniting and advancing food banks and our vision is a world free of hunger. GFN provides food banks with the resources and know-how needed to better serve those facing hunger. Food banks source food from all segments of the supply chain and then deliver it to an established network of community agencies serving vulnerable populations. The results are more hungry people are fed, less food is wasted, and more charitable dollars are spent on addressing the root causes of hunger. GFN currently serves food banks in more than 40 countries. In 2020, 949 food banks in the GFN system distributed 882M kilograms of food to over 59,000 agencies serving approximately 40 million people, a 132% increase over 2019. Of the approximate 40 million people served, 17.6M are children between the ages of 0-17 years, 6.8M are adults over the age of 50, and 22.6M are women and girls.
