26 APRIL 2014 / SNF Receives “Food Bank Partner” Award by the European Federation of Food Banks

On April 25, the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA) held its yearly General Assembly in Lyon, France. At this event, member food banks exchange experiences, strengthen ties and launch collaborative projects.

Food banks from 21 countries form the network. This year FEBA celebrated 30 years of food banks in Europe where it launched the “Ideas that Feed” website. This initiative, supported by the SNF and carried out in partnership with the Global Food Banking Network, aims to share best practices in fighting food waste. The SNF received a “Food Bank Partner” award, which acknowledged the Foundation’s support of FEBA as well as the support it had provided to individual members.
