Food banking values   

All food bank members operate along the same values contained in the FEBA Charter: giving, sharing, fighting food waste and European solidarity.

  • Giving: products received and distributed are free of charge, food bank operations depends primarily on volunteers and on the support of multiple private and public organizations and individuals.
  • Sharing: products are shared fairly and without any discrimination between the receiving partner charity organizations and the people they support.
  • Fighting food waste: by recovering nutritious surpluses from the food chain, food banks play a major role in reducing food wastage.
  • Calling for solidarity across Europe: food banks foster social cohesion between all the constituents of societies at local national and European levels as well as solidarity between themselves whatever the countries they are active in.
