Our Mission

In 2020 „Maisto bankas" rescued 5307 tons of edible food, which otherwise would have gone to landfill. Food waste is a major ecological issue. About 25 percent of global greenhouse gas emission is generated by the food supply chain. One third of all the food produced for human consumption is wasted. Which means that food, that has already caused a negative impact on planet earth, is discarded.

On the other hand, 20 percent of lithuanian population suffers food insufficiency.

By saving food „Maisto bankas" solves two problems - ecological and social.

"Maisto bankas" is the largest and most recognizable Lithuanian charity, working in collaboration with 600 local organizations operating in 81 Lithuanian cities and towns. Every fifth family in Lithuania faces an unpleasant dilemma every week - to allocate their very limited family budget for food or other necessities - medicines or after-school activities for children. We work hard to ensure that families do not face such choice and as less as possible would go to sleep hungry.

Maisto bankas has resources to reach only 1/3 of all people in need. We struggle to support living in distant regions. Therefore we sincerely ask you to donate to Maisto bankas. With the donation of 1 Euro we can provide 15 meals, so even small gifts of funds matter.

Sincere thanks for your kindness!
