Supporting the Voedselbank
Deloitte colleagues use their expertise to support the Voedselbanken Nederland in their mission to provide health, free food to people who are temporarily are not able to provide food for themselves and their families
Currently, three pro-bono initiatives are running to support the Voedselbanken Nederland. Each one was started by an individual colleague at Deloitte via the Deloitte Impact Foundation. Read their blogs to learn more about their initiatives and their experiences.
The Voedselbanken Nederland
The Voedselbanken provide food which was obtained free of charge, to people in the Netherlands who are temporarily unable to buy it themselves. They do this with volunteers only.
In the Netherlands, more than a million people live below the poverty line. The Voedselbanken help those who really can't make it financially by temporarily supplying them with food packages. To provide their customers with sufficient food, they work together with companies, institutions, municipalities and private individuals. In this way, together they ensure that poverty is combated, food surpluses disappear and the environment is less burdened. To increase the self-reliance of their customers, they work with local organizations that help our customers get back on their own two feet. After all, food aid must always be temporary.
