European Food Banks Federation
Annual Convention 2023 - Berlin
Nentas Dimitris, on behalf of the Greek Food Bank, presented how the Food Banks has been supporting the wildfire victims in Peloponnisos.
The effects of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the war in Ukraine have placed the global economy under tremendous strain. This three-fold crisis provoking crippling supply chains, skyrocketing inflation rates, and spiralling costs of living leads to food donation becoming a game changer and food security being increasingly fragile. In this difficult period FEBA Members continue to work facing the challenge not just to prevent good surplus food from becoming food waste but also to ensure its safe delivery and redistribution to charities helping people in need. During the 2 days of the Annual Convention, FEBA together with its members as well as external partners and stakeholders shared, discussed, and exchanged best practices to alleviate the repercussions of the crisis and become more resilient to future shocks.
