1/3 of the produced food is wasted

Thousand hundreds of people are starving

Help to get this food to those in need!

The Hungarian Food Bank Association is a non-profit organization, which started its work in 2005. We aim to collect consumable surplus food in order to donate them to 300,000 Hungarians in need, thereby helping to decrease poverty and malnutrition.

Though we experience 1.8 million tons of food waste in Hungary, the number of starving people is growing every day! If all the food surplus would land on the table of people in need, hunger wouldn't be an existing notion.

The food rescued  by the Hungarian Food Bank is delivered to our warehouse by refrigerator car, but it is delivered to the necessitous by our partners who need to be ensured cooling  boxes. Unfortunately, we experience constant shortage, because boxes get deteriorated during the continuous food rescuing process. This year we need 200 new cooling boxes, for which our ambassadors are collecting donation according to the kilometres they run. The price of the 200 boxes is 1.400.000 HUF, one box costs 7000 HUF.

One cooling box can contain almost 20 kg of food, which equals a worth of 20,000 HUF. They can be used around 150 times, making possible the delivery of 3,000 kg of food. Due to the continuous food rescuing, most of our boxes deteriorate in a year, so the Hungarian Food Bank is dealing with constant shortage.

Today you can help us! Every donation counts!
