Tafel Deutschland is a service organization and mouthpiece for over 960 food banks throughout Germany. The umbrella organization has promoted food banking in Germany for over 25 years by saving food that would otherwise be thrown away and making sure it goes to people affected by poverty who need it the most.
Tafel Deutschland also represents our member food banks’ interests at national and international levels. Tafel Deutschland is financed by donations. The donations collected via GlobalGiving support our food banking mission in Germany. Especially the current crisis, rising prices have resulted in fewer food donations and more people in need turning to the Tafel for support.
Tafel Deutschland offers targeted assistance to its member food banks: The "Energy-Invest" support program, for example, helps our network of food banks and pantries make their operations more sustainable and energy-saving in the long term. This enables them e.g. to invest in e-transporters, photovoltaic systems and energy-saving equipment. Tafel Deutschland is setting up these and other support programs to support or volunteers and food saving operations in Germany.
