Information about our organisation:

The food banks help the impoverished by temporarily providing them with food packages. In order to establish those, we work together with companies, (non profit) organisations, governmental organisations and private organisations. As such we prevent poverty and food waste leaving a smaller environmental footprint. 


Voedselbanken Nederland aims at providing healthier and more varied food packages. With that in mind, Voedselbanken Nederland has established the Vegetables & Fruit Team in the Westland. At its assembly point, we aim at processing (sorting, repackaging and distributing) big(ger) amounts of vegetables and fruit. Initially, for the area surrounding the Westland but ultimately also at a national level, providing all food banks in The Netherlands with more vegetables and fruit.
