Food Banks in the Netherlands

Food banks in the Netherlands, you have probably heard.But do you know how a food to eat and drink? For whom the food packages, they provide free, be? How can anyone be so?? s package can apply? What mission food banks? How many people eat a food bank? How food banks to get money and working on food banks? And what do you think of the idea that children and adult football fans who eat food bank, a festive “Orange feel to deliver when it’s once again a sporting events, namely Orange drinks and food?

Food banks and their mission

The Mission of Dutch food banks is to prevent waste of food at companies and individuals to collect free food and provide them for free to people in the Netherlands that is lower than a certain minimum economic life.
The strategy for rural food banks

Food banks will distribute the collected food as fairly as possible among the inhabitants of the Netherlands who really need a diet. They would of course recognize as efficiently as possible.
Statistics or how widespread is the problem?

Statistical data will determine the extent of the problem clearly.
Tenth anniversary of food banks Netherlands already expired
It is sad and happy at the same time as the Dutch food banks in more than 10 years of existence. Sad because it seems as long as people in the Netherlands who need food aid. Fortunately, because thanks to food packages in these banks that find themselves in financial distress, are currently supported.
Number of packages, clients, volunteers, and food banks
In 2013 the Netherlands distributed as?? s 900 000 food parcels to about 55,000 people! This was achieved with 135 food banks, which then started held by 5500 volunteers. All food banks, also worked with national and regional umbrella organisations and works exclusively with all unpaid volunteers, including Board members.
Crisis
Influenced by the recent economic crisis in the Netherlands the number of people who need a food is still growing! Among the other people who have become unemployed recently. Or whose company went bankrupt by freelancers because the number of jobs that they contribute, have fallen sharply.
What can you do as an individual to food banks?

World suffering can not solve, but you can support food banks by people who do not have enough to eat.Then you have lost something. This can be done in three ways.
During sporting Orange food away

Give food
Of course you can eat and drink to get local food banks. They perform throughout the year fundraising, and you can set times and places, deliver the food. Sports tournaments and Roland Garros, a European Championship football, Wimbledon, the Tour de France, the Olympics and Paralympics, you can decorate your House with orange flags, to dress from head to toe in orange and treat yourself for fun in orange food and drink. Is not sporty as you fight to have all food banks in the Netherlands orange colors?
Orange food and drink
You pour the Orange food and drink. Let your imagination run wild and thinks:

  • aprikosmarmelad
  • Orange jam
  • fruit sprinkles
  • coconut bread
  • Orange juice
  • oranges
  • mandarins
  • nectarines
  • peaches
  • Orange lentils
  • Orange cordial
  • Orange custard
  • Peach custard
  • carrot
  • carrots canned or bottled
  • Carrot Soup
  • Pumpkins
  • soup with pumpkin
  • canned salmon

And?? more on the shelves at Albert Heijn, Deka, C1000, Lidl or Spar sees. As there is a lot more solid than I can come up so fast! It seems even at major sporting events to be orange mayonnaise!
Volunteer
You can, if you want and can use a long time, a volunteer at your local food bank or at regional or national umbrella organizations. How you can help collect food, when compiling packages, do administrative work, vehicles and a local food cleaning.
Donate money
Food banks also need money for administrative expenses, such as maintaining a Web site. What the national umbrella comes in is used for administration, telephone etc. What remains after that is evenly distributed throughout the region? s and local associations. Business leaders can have their company sponsored a food bank. A number of big companies that are already doing it, including Macro, Aviko, Arla Foods, Heinz, Nestle and Unilever. As a private person, you can make a donation or take a food bank in your will.
What are the customers in food banks?

Around customers food banks there are unfortunately many prejudices. It would be lazy, unemployed, people with low incomes, parents who take care of themselves, but are neglecting their children, people with debts irresponsible loans?? But it’s not reality: there are also people with insufficient funds, with low-paid jobs, with proper training and without debt. And often the people who have fallen into a vicious circle and continues to be in trouble. Think of examples from the tv series? A toss-up?? RTL.In this program, people who find themselves in such a situation, helped.
Who can receive a food package?

To be eligible for a food must singles after deducting all of its fixed costs, less than?? 175-on ice per month for all other costs involving life, including food and drink. For the families, of course, apply different criteria. For families is partly due to the composition of the family. Obviously makes a big difference if there are two parents with three children and two parents with a child or a single mother with two children. The exact amounts can be found on the website of the national food bank.
How potential customers on a diet?

People who may be awarded a food, should give insight into their economy. They only get food and drinks from a food bank, if it is really necessary and only on a temporary basis. Some food banks volunteers to assess the applications. The other is the request through the GPs, social workers or other social bodies. How to when you’re sitting around, you will know by the look of the sites of the local food banks. Enter in the search engine “food” in and place your name or look at a map of the Netherlands on the website of the national umbrella organization.
To get food to eat and drink?

Food banks can put together meals by collecting food and beverage businesses. Foods that should have otherwise dispose of these companies and destroy! Sheer waste and, of course, give way to the more profitable companies and also good for its image! Also carries all types of social action that they collect food and deliver it to local food banks. And then there are also people who eat or drink or cleaning and sometimes deliver their used clothing to local food banks.
What food?

It’s always about the unopened packaging, food and drink can be consumed in a responsible way, without people at risk health. Products often edible much longer than the specified expiry date. For fresh foods, of course, apply shorter deadlines. Food banks have cold rooms where they are held and to ensure that such foodstuffs arrive on time to their customers.
Conclusion

It is very unfortunate that there are people in the Netherlands who are not rich enough to eat and drink. But fortunately, there are food banks that support these families and singles. Happy is that all somehow a little, oh no, contributes a piece or a SIP.
