Food bank

The Hungarian Food Bank Association is a non-profit organization that works to make a link between surplus food and people in need in Hungary in order to help reduce poverty, hunger and malnutrition. The Hungarian Food Bank Association started its work in September 2005, and became a full-fledged member of the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA) in 2006. Since our foundation: we distributed 42 300 tons of food worth over 67,4 million $ (20,3 billion HUF) to more than 340 000 people in need in partnership with almost 325 non-governmental organizations and municipalities. With the help of our volunteers we find and collect surplus food about to be discarded in retail stores, factories and process plants we donate these products to specialist charities and local institutions. Our core activities include: non-profit wholesale express distribution of surplus food from supermarkets. We do not offer direct donations to individuals, only to local organizations.
