Food banks around the world

Food banks around the world

The first food bank was founded in the United Sates in 1966. Nowadays food banks that help millions of deprived persons are found in many countries around the world from America through Australia to Western Europe.

The European Federation of Food Banks brings together 264 food banks from 22 countries that deliver more than 400 000 tons of food annually to 33 000 charitable organisations that distribute food donations to nearly 5,9 million people in need.

Following 8 months of temporary membership, the Hungarian Food Bank Association was awarded full-fledged membership in the European Federation of Food Banks in May 2006.

(Countries marked in dark green are full-fledged members of FEBA while light green indicates countries where food banks have only recently been established and whose applications for membership are currently being processed.)

Testimonials
István Fodor
Arany János Children’s Home - Director
’Seek always to do some good, somewhere... Even if it's a little thing, do something for those that need help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it’ - that's what the Hungarian Food Bank Association does day by day in a completely unselfish manner.
