COVID-19: from health to social emergency
The European Food Banks Federation is a network of 351 Food Banks in 30 European countries, preventing food waste and reducing food insecurity.
As COVID-19 spread across Europe, we committed to fulfil our mission – preventing food waste and reducing food insecurity in Europe – and in 2020 our work focused on the devastating effects of the pandemic. Our members tirelessly worked facing the challenge not just to rescue increased quantities of surplus food from the food supply chain, resulting in higher operating costs, but also ensure its safe redistribution to charities helping a growing number of people in need across Europe.
In 2020, FEBA started working on the project “Quantifying the impact of European Food Banks – From Farm to Fork” pursuing the goal of developing an efficient system for data collection and analysis, through the strengthening of the capability of FEBA and its members.
FEBA represents its membership on cross-cutting issues, promoting policies to facilitate food donation while preventing food waste and reduce food insecurity and social exclusion, working with European institutions and international organisations, European stakeholders and EU-level NGOs.
