In Taiwan, there are 1.6 million populations a year suffering from hunger! Yet, more than hundred tons of food are thrown away. The Mustard Seed Mission see the need and establish community food banks to receive donated food and offer service in the communities!
People, shops, or corporations will donate fresh food such as meat, vegetables, or fruits and the amounts are unpredictable. Without refrigerators and trucks, those foods will turn rotted easily before delivering to needy people or families. It causes food-waste again! Refrigerators and trucks will help us to keep food in good conditions so that needy people are able to have fresh foods!
The project will help the distribution center is able to maintain food condition and to distribute food to community food banks efficiently. The service scale is wide, so foods can be delivered in good conditions when receiving huge amount of donated fresh foods in order to serve more people even to remote areas.
There are 281 community food banks in Taiwan will be benefited. Each community food bank each month is able to serve 80 people in average. In total, there will be 22,480 persons-times a month be benefited and get rid of hunger through this End Hunger project.
