Start a FoodBank
Partner with IFBN and run a FoodBank under your corporate leadership. FoodBanks are a great initiative for your company to extend its CSR programmes and engage employees in CSR activities to touch millions of lives by putting an end to their hunger.
Become a Product partner
Every year, companies involved in large scale processed food production remove tons of food from the supply chain. However, the food meets all food quality norms and is suitable for consumption. These companies can feed millions by donating the unsold/ surplus inventory. This will help:
- Reduce food wastage in an ecosystem where millions starve
- Release valuable warehouse space
- Save financial and environmental costs on disposal of usable products
- Build the image of the company’s products as socially responsible
Employee Volunteer Programme
IFBN encourages volunteers to join us in the fight against hunger and to help increase awareness. We engage employees as volunteers in IFBN as well as at the FoodBanks, for the service of those in need. At IFBN, you can contribute your special skills to perform functions such as Supply Chain Management, Quality Assurance, and MIS development. Food banks also offer great opportunities to contribute time and skills, understand how hunger impacts communities, work with local volunteers, and make a difference.
Start a Special Programme
Together with IFBN, corporates can design and implement in their region of operations, a food security and nutrition program to support better health and performance outcomes for children, women and men.
