Food banks do not buy food but collect food surpluses. Usually food that would otherwise be destroyed. With the food donated, the food banks currently help around 5% of households living in poverty. We only help the poorest people.

There are more than 1.2 million people living in the Netherlands below the poverty line. We would like to help more people. To achieve this, we structurally need more sfood. We strive to put together a varied package of about 25 products every week, tailored to the size of each family.

All the food that the Food Bank distributes is donated. If you have products left over, donate them to the Food Bank. The donation of (sustainable) food and products for household and personal hygiene can be done by private individuals as well as producers and distributors of food and products. For everything applies: provided the package is unbroken and the THT / TGT date is correct or the products are 100% qualitatively good. and certified by the supplier.
