Food Security Foundation India under its flagship programme - India FoodBanking Network (IFBN) addresses the issues of hunger through a network of FoodBanks. We have a vision to eliminate hunger in India by 2020 by establishing a strong and efficient network of FoodBanks throughout the country, so that every district has access to at least one FoodBank.
India FoodBanking Network (IFBN) is bringing together the government, private sector, and NGOs to fight hunger and malnutrition in the country. IFBN is establishing a network of transformational FoodBanks to systematically capture food from donors and channelize it to the institutional feeding programs. The network is a multi-stakeholder partnership of corporate sector, government, leading development agencies, and local communities who partner and contribute to sustain the food banking movement in India.
IFBN thus acts as a platform for aggregation and effective deployment of India’s existing resources of food, funds, infrastructure, technology, spirit of volunteerism and culture of feeding to address the problem of hunger. In addition to supporting feeding institutions and strengthening delivery systems, IFBN is also looking at facilitating regulatory changes to create an environment conducive to giving food.
