Increasing food insecurity

While national demand has increased by 9% (200,000 additional people received over six months in various meal distribution structures) and in a context of purchasing power crisis and energy crisis, the first network food aid in France requires all actors in the food sector: farmers, industrialists, distributors and public authorities…

All must unite in a spirit of national solidarity to fight food insecurity“, invite the leaders of the Ardèche association. A precariousness that more than 16,500 people now face in the Drôme and Ardèche, where the Food Bank’s 85 partner associations take over. Each year, the national collection makes it possible to distribute approximately 10% of the 264 million meals intended for the most needy. This year, more than in the past, the national collection of food banks will be one of the biggest challenges of solidarity in a few days from its organization and behavior. start of winter In 2021 the Drôme Ardèche Food Bank had collected 162 tons , and this was insufficient to meet all the needs.

How about becoming a volunteer?

In addition to participating in the brotherhood’s momentum by becoming a donor, it is possible to volunteer for a few hours during the national fundraiser.
