Heart for people, eye for food.
In the Netherlands, more than one million people live below the poverty line. Voedselbanken Nederland (English: Food Banks Netherlands) help the poorest by temporarily providing them with food packages.
In order to provide their customers with sufficient food, they work together with companies, institutions, municipalities and individuals. Together they ensure that poverty is fought, food surpluses disappear and the environment is burdened less. To increase the self-reliance of the customers, Voedselbanken Nederland work together with local organizations that help the customers to stand on their own two feet again. After all food aid should always be temporary.
