WorldFoodDay commemorates the founding of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in 1945. It’s a day when we raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity. Kim Frankovich, Global Vice President of Sustainability for Griffith Foods and Bhagyalakshmi Ganapathy, Sustainability Manager for Griffith Foods India, recently visited the Bangalore FoodBank in Bangalore, India to get a first-hand look at the efforts to combat hunger and ensure food security.
The team visited a community which empowers self-help women groups, and distributed food kits as a part of their relief program to enable women in providing nutritious meals. They also spent time at a charity run school and shelter home, that features a school kitchen garden where children are encouraged to plant, grow, nurture and harvest fresh produce. Their visit also included a migrant community neighborhood, where as a part of the Food Rescue program, packaged food products are redistributed to communities in need. Griffith Foods is proud to partner with Bangalore Food Bank on World Food Day and every day to advance its vision of eradicating hunger, malnutrition and preventing food waste.
