The knowledge that hundreds of thousands people recieve food rescued by the Foodbank gives me lots of energy.
We were sure that we were starting something serious when we founded Hungarian Foodbank, but we didn’t expect such a fast and great developement. Thanks for the well-organized team, the dedicated volunteers and the generous donors.

We decided to establish this Food Bank because Hungary had not had a food bank before although there had been strong demand for it. Fortunately, it seems to be working very well.

I work here in the biggest part of my free time and still find it hard to believe how much satisfaction and motivation one can get from working as a volunteer in an excellent team.

The reason why I like Food Bank is that it gives me the chance to use my networks effectively for a good cause. It really motivates me if I can participate in creating something new. Such opportunity rarely happens in life.

I always thought it was important to help others and care for others not just myself. I am really happy to meet new people through the Food Bank and feel good about being able to give some help to others.

During my job searching I was looking for a job at a positive company, where our work is based on compassion and love, where I work for a good purpose. With God’s blessing I have found it. Here at Food Bank, we work to provide even better, more to the needy, by working together in a very good team.

Even in the earlier stages of my professional career, I always dealt with charitable programs, I worked for NGOs supporting people living with disabilities and kids with serious illnesses. At the Hungarian Food Bank Association I would like to involve individuals and companies to join us, partner with us and donate to our goals: we can only succeed together in reducing food waste and fighting hunger.

I searched for a good case which I could stand by as a volunteer. I chose Hungarian Food Bank, because their goals were smypathic, and they operate serious systems in order of transparency and equailty. After 1,5 years I got the chance to be the part of the organization as a managing director.  It's an exciting challenge to integrate and review my experience from for profit sector in the non-profit world.

Working together with dedicated professionals who support the needy on a daily basis is very motivating and is a special experience for me. Surpluses in the Food Bank's network truly go to those who need them the most. It is an uplifting feeling that I myself can also contribute to this as a member of this team.

You always fight to live just a bit higher standard. You achieve that you have a place to sleep, something to wear and to eat. You are looking for the next goal to live just a bit higher standard. You look around. The question is, what you do notice? The neighbor who has one more room, classier clothes and one bigger refrigerator. Or the pensioner who lives at the end of the street, and at the end of the month he can't even make ends meet. You need another goal to live better. The question is what gives you this feeling. If you get one more or if you give one more. The choice is yours.

I worked in a completely different position before I applied to the Food Bank. I realized here that I really enjoy physical work, it keeps me in shape, but for these warehouse duties it's also important to be mentally fit. I love this job, I’m proud of the result of my work. And by the way, the team is incredible!

There is enough food for everyone on this planet, unfortunately not everyone gets it. I am happy that I can contribute to the Food Bank's work against loss and waste, and I can step up against hunger.

I like to work in teams and invent new things. My current favourite bonmot is from the famous presentation of Simon Sinek: “'I have a dream', not 'I have a plan'”. If I believe in my business it takes me further than if I'm just just looking at it as a business plan…

I am pleased to be able to use my years of administrative and IT experience together with a dedicated team for a good cause.

The best part of this job is that I have the opportunity to help others and I also collect a lot of useful experience. And the greatest reward we get is the smile on the faces of the people and the hope in their eyes when they realise that they are not alone and there are people who want to help them. My motivation is to get the most and the best of what we have.

I wanted to work for a good cause that touches me all the way, mobilizes all the resources in me, and I can use my experience so far. This is the mission of the Food Bank. Seeing the direct value-creating results of the work is very motivating.

I have worked at restaurants both at home and abroad, and I was shocked by the scale of food waste. That made me join the team of the Hungarian Food Bank. At their KitCharity project I can stand up for sustainability and the zero waste philsophy, and even support people in need. Two worthy causes, one prefect match.

Everyone spends a significant part of his days at work, it does not matter at all in what atmosphere he does this. From the very first day at the Food Bank, I felt that I had become a member of an amazing team. It's nice to wake up every day feeling satisfied with the tasks that await me. If you feel being useful, that is the best motivation!

I deal with food rescue and distribution for a long time as a kind of hobby, thus it was a pleasure when I had the opportunity to work with the Hungarian Food Bank. I am glad to know the Hungarian non-profit organizations in profoundly and work with them everyday.

I worked for various multinational firms, but there came a point in my career when I no longer wanted to just deal with meaningless numbers every day – I wanted my work to have value and real meaning. I could fully resonate with the mission of the Food Bank, especially since my children were born: I want a livable world for them. In addition, I became a member of a supportive host team here. I found everything I was looking for.

Food waste is just one of the many stupidities of humanity, and at least something can be done about it. I find it motivating that the activities of the Food Bank are both aimed at contributing to sustainable development and helping families in need. Specific help for specific problems.

I decided to join the Food Bank because I could strongly relate to its basic idea of distributing surplus food to deprived people that makes it different from other NGOs that collect and distribute donations. Apart from having a good cause, it is also very important for me to contribute to our success by doing things that suit me and working in an inspiring team that help me enjoy my job. We successfully create value and we enjoy doing it and I feel proud to be part of it.
