IFBN recognizes that Civil Society Organizations play a critical role in the fight against hunger; given their expertise, their proximity to, and representation of, the hungry and poor. IFBN extends cooperation to NGOs in advocating and addressing the issue of hunger. NGOs can contact the local FoodBanks and work in collaboration with them to better serve their beneficiaries.
- NGOs can source free-of-cost the non-perishable food (including grains like rice, pulses, wheat flour, semolina, etc) for distribution from the FoodBanks and be assured of a certain level of quality and efficiency.
- The funds of the NGOs can be put to other use, for procurement of necessary fresh produce to include in the meals they provide, or to provide other services.
