FEBA Official Opening: thank you!

 19-10-2018

10 October 2018 marked a big day in the history of the European Food Banks Federation: the official opening of our headquarters in Brussels, inaugurated by Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, and with the presence of Bernard Dandrel, the founding father of Food Banks in Europe.

We want to thank all the participants who were present to celebrate this important milestone with us. We were very honored to have you by our side. Even those who could not share this important moment with us, we felt like you were here with us!

“Our members overwhelmingly voted for the transfer of our headquarters from Bourg-La-Reine in the south of Paris to Brussels. […] This evolution will allow us to tackle with renewed energy and resources the challenges ahead.”
Jacques Vandenschrik, President of the European Food Banks Federation.

Let’s continue to fight food waste and help people in need, all together!
