FAO webinar: solutions for reducing food waste and improving food security amidst pandemic

On 11 November the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) organized the webinar “Food waste prevention and reduction in times of crisis”. The virtual event focused on facilitating access to food for vulnerable groups and on tackling food waste during the pandemic. Experts from different sectors shared their experience and discussed solutions and practices to prevent and reduce food waste in this unprecedented situation.

FEBA Secretary General, Angela Frigo, was invited as a speaker. She explained how during the lockdown period in Europe, food demand increased on average by 30 percent, but Food Banks continued to support the most needy with digital tools making a real difference.

Balázs Cseh, President of the Hungarian Food Bank Association, participated to the panel discussion.
