Banc dels Aliments Foundation

NETWORK FOR RECOVERING FOOD TO AVOID WASTE AND REDUCE POVERTY, ENSURING THAT NO HOME IS LEFT WITHOUT FOOD.

Banc dels Aliments de Barcelona (BdA) is an independent, non-partisan, non-denominational and non-profit foundation, whose main objectives are to avoid waste by recovering surplus food suitable for human consumption and to fight poverty by delivering it to those in our community in need of food.


OBJECTIVES

Recover food which is suitable for human consumption, in that it preserves all its nutritional properties, but not for commercial use. This avoids it going to waste.

Donate the food obtained to the networks of approved social organizations, which have food distribution centers for people or families in situations of poverty and social vulnerability.

COMMITMENT

SUSTAINABILITY
Reducing food waste by recovering food suitable for human consumption that has been rejected throughout the food chain; food that will either be destined to something other than human consumption or, more likely, will be destroyed, with the environmental consequences this entails.

SOLIDARITY
Redistributing the recovered food surpluses to vulnerable people to help guarantee the fundamental right to food and access to a sufficient, safe and healthy diet for everyone. In this way, Banc dels Aliments contributes to reducing their food costs.
