BULGARIAN FOOD BANK FOUNDATION
Bulgarian food bank operates since 2012.
We aim to further develop our operation by starting food banking operation in the town of Vratsa, which is a central town in the North West region of Bulgaria, being the poorest region in the country.
We serve organisations taking care of people in need by securing food support through food banking.
Our food support programs are designed to help children, elderly and minority communities ( roma in particular).
Town of Vratsa in North West Bulgaria.
The region is a low density region with few opportunities.
Access to food by children, elderly and minority communities ( roma in particular ) is a daily challenge in the North West Region.
Access to food is a basic human right and we support extensively organisations ( NGOs ) taking care of people in need by providing food support programs.
Our programs support the work of NGOs, involve volunteers, local businesses and local governments, working together to secure food support for people in need.
All of our programs are designed to support children, elderly and minority communities (roma in particular).
We plan to serve 6000 people monthly, including children ( 4000 ), elderly (1000) and people form minority communities ( 1000 ).
The usual development steps to develop our new locations are:
- identifying and connecting to local NGOs, taking care of people in need;
- involving local government;
- opening food warehouse operation;
- contacting local businesses for food and financial donations.
Food banking operation in Vratsa will secure food support to 6000 people monthly (children, elderly and people from minority communities) in the town of Vratsa and North West region.
Connecting different organisations from the NGO sector and business, local governments and the community in general, creates a very strong platform for shared values and social involvement.
Developing food banking in Bulgaria has always been our mission.
Bringing food banking to North West Bulgaria will benefit the local community and will have impact on local social activities.
