    The Organisation

    Over 40,000 vulnerable individuals receive food aid from the Lebanese Food Bank through a network of 75 NGOs across the country as they collect food surplus from more than 50 food partners, including supermarkets, caterers, food producers, and importers. 

    In addition, the Lebanese Food Bank runs a cooking project, an awareness program, and a food boxes programme with dry food items, which contributes to the social-economic wellbeing of vulnerable populations in remote areas.

    Alfanar's Investment: Looking Ahead

    Our pilot investment will enable the Lebanese Food Bank to further its social impact by scaling its presence in high poverty regions, whilst likewise reviewing its impact model and measurement tools. 

    A goal of Alfanar is also to advise the Lebanese Food Bank on revenue-generating activities, guiding their transformation into a social enterprise that is less reliant on donor funding and more financially sustainable.
