A message from the CEO

Food banks as a lifeline: Watch our video and hear from food bankers

Dear Partner – A few weeks ago I wrote to you about how your partnership powered a strong humanitarian response to the COVID-19 crisis in more than 50 countries worldwide. Thanks to supporters like you, the GFN Network of food banks were able to provide meals to more than 22 million families and individuals facing hunger between March and June 2020. We know hunger is on the rise. We know we’re still at the beginning of this global health and economic crisis. We know there is much, much more work to do. Today, please take a few minutes to hear first-hand the impact your support has had on food bank organizations in Mexico, South Africa, Indonesia, Honduras, Ghana and India during this crisis: GFN is embarking on the most significant humanitarian campaign in our organization’s history. To power communities in the fight against hunger during this COVID-19 crisis, we need your partnership – your donations, your ideas and your voice. Next week GFN will be sharing more about our priorities over the next 18 months and how we hope partners like you will continue to join us in the fight against hunger. Food banks bring hope and help to millions of hungry people worldwide. It’s through the generous investment of partners like you that make this work possible. Thank you. My best, Lisa Moon President & CEO The Global FoodBanking Network
