Save Food Albania Network

There is MUCH FOOD that can be recovered in Albania. Many businesses would rather donate their food to those that need it than throw it away and have all that food get wasted. On the other side, there are many people that need that food but who don’t have access to it.

Feeding Albania has recently initiated the Save Food Albania Network, a partnership of local and community organisations that are working together for the recovery of the excess food and the redirection of it to the families in need. Currently, there are about 25 organisations that receive and redistribute food. This community not only feeds, it also fights food waste, thus avoiding harmful GHG gases from entering the atmosphere.

This group operates with the moto ‘THE RIGHT TO FOOD.’ The mission of the group is simple: Recover and Redirect donated food to communities and people in need in Albania. 

While NGOs, often times conduct food banking activities on their own, Save Food Albania, actually brings together a number of NGOs that are willing to share their resources and people in order to have food recovered, rotated among them and ultimately be saved for human consumption. We believe that it is through sharing and caring that we must go forward. We believe that it is possible to actually feed many people through the good will and the involvement of people, government, businesses and civil society.
