At EU level, we have witnessed increasing efforts to prevent food losses and waste and by the end of 2023, the European Commission is set to present legally binding targets to reduce food waste across the EU.
By conducting their activities, Food Banks do not just support the resilience and functionality of the food system and provide food to charities helping people in need but can play an essential role to support EU policy makers and food business operators in resolving the challenges related to the achievement of the envisaged targets.
Next to the interventions of high-level speakers, Food Banks’ representatives from five EU Member States are given the floor to introduce their best practice activities to prevent food waste and foster food security, which is under increasing pressure due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
