Some NIS 22.5 million worth of food is collected and distributed annually by Leket Israel, Israel’s largest food rescue organization and host of the Global FoodBanking Network (GFN), an annual board meeting in Jerusalem said on Tuesday.

The GFN is an umbrella organization for food rescue organizations across the globe, supporting and enhancing their work through cooperation and roundtable discussions such as the one that took place in Jerusalem on Tuesday, to allow for different food banks in different areas to learn from each other.

Members of the GFN board answered questions posed by the Jerusalem Post and spoke about the current state of food rescue, food insecurity, and the future of food banking in Israel and around the world.
