Our vision is to eliminate hunger in India by 2020, by establishing a strong and efficient network of FoodBanks across the country, wherein every district has access to at least one FoodBank.
India has enough food to feed every hungry person. Help us get it to them!
Organizations as well as individuals can join the fight. Here’s how:
Initiate a CSR programme with FoodBanks
Business and industry in India are playing an increasingly vital role in social initiatives through their CSR activities. The need of the hour is to address hunger and malnutrition, the rates of which are alarming, especially among children and women. Join hands with us to make India hunger-free.
Volunteer with Us
IFBN depends on volunteers to join us in the fight against hunger and to help increase awareness. We encourage people to volunteer for the service of those in need. Food banks offer great opportunities to contribute time and skills, learn how hunger impacts communities, work with other local volunteers, and make a difference.

IFBN relies entirely on voluntary contributions to finance its projects. Donate, or support us in raising funds to strengthen our fight against hunger in India.
Message from our Board Members
Here is what our Board members think:
Mr. Sam Pitroda, Chairman of IFBN Board
IFBN is not the only solution; the idea is to have many people participating and joining hands in different ways.
Mr. Siraj Chaudhary, President, Cargill India
In the wake of the Companies Act which has made CSR implementation a compulsory activity, there is an opportunity to address issues of hunger and malnutrition. Through the Food Banking initiative, tangible and measurable goals can be provided to various corporations for their CSR activities.
Mr. Ishteyaque Amjad, Director-Corporate Affairs, Cargill India
Huge opportunity exists for strengthening the Food Banking initiatives across India through tapping in the network of diverse and like-minded stakeholders to build partnerships.
Ms. Vandana Singh, CEO, FSFI-IFBN
There is a need for a multi pronged approach in collaboration with diverse stakeholders. We also need to strengthen government partnerships to augment our programs and implement local solutions with a national strength.
