Hungarian Foodbank Association
The main goal of the Hungarian Food Bank Association is to support the reduction of malnutrition and poverty by collecting and distributing food donations in Hungary. The Food Bank searches for food that cannot not be sold on the market for some reason but is still consumable, and takes care of the transportation, safe storage and distribution of the collected food stocks. Within the food supply we receive there are products with aesthetic defects (for example packaging errors), grocery items close to expiration date, after season products, and other food items that are consumable but the producer or retailer does not wish to or cannot trade with. This food is often being destroyed. The goal of the Food Bank is to seek as much industrial and retail surpluses as possible and forward it to people in need.
