Our daily task is to make sure that food is a righ
By Lina Barrantes - Fundraising Coordinator
The fight against hunger is at the heart of the world's political agenda and headlines. The speed at which the effects of climate change, the volatility of food prices, armed conflicts, and the aftermath of the pandemic have caused millions of families to face the harsh reality of not having enough to eat. At the Bogotá Food Bank, with simple, practical, and generous actions, we support national and global efforts to defeat the longest-lived but avoidable virus: hunger.
So far this year, we have delivered more than 14 million kilos of products to thousands of low-income families and saved more than 3 million kilograms of food between our Agricultural Surplus Recovery Program (PREA) and our warehouse in Corabastos. Our work is possible thanks to the generous hearts of thousands of donors whom every day stand up to build a more equitable, fair, and inclusive country.
We are very grateful for the kind heart of our donors who continue to sow seeds of hope through GlobalGiving. Change does not come alone and does not depend on a few; this battle needs us to be united and with open hearts.
