India FoodBanking Network
India FoodBanking Network (IFBN) is an effort to bring the government, private sector, and NGOs together to fight hunger and malnutrition in the country. IFBN is a network of transformational FoodBanks to systematically capture food from donors and channelize it to the institutional feeding programs and support the food security mission in India. The network is a multi-stakeholder partnership of global and domestic aids, corporate sector, government, leading development agencies, and local communities who partner and contribute to sustain the food banking movement in India.
It 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.
Food Security Foundation India under its flagship programme - India FoodBanking Network (IFBN) addresses the issues of hunger through a network of concerned stakeholders lead by 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.
