Information about our organisation:
The food banks help the impoverished by temporarily providing them with food packages. In order to establish those, we work together with companies, (non profit) organisations, governmental organisations and private organisations. As such we prevent poverty and food waste leaving a smaller environmental footprint.
Voedselbanken Nederland aims at providing healthier and more varied food packages. With that in mind, Voedselbanken Nederland has established the Vegetables & Fruit Team in the Westland. At its assembly point, we aim at processing (sorting, repackaging and distributing) big(ger) amounts of vegetables and fruit. Initially, for the area surrounding the Westland but ultimately also at a national level, providing all food banks in The Netherlands with more vegetables and fruit.

De ‘Groente en Fruitbrigade’ is located at ABC Westland, Poeldijk. The vegetables and fruit comes directly from the growers in the Westland. It will otherwise be thrown out, despite the fact that the quality is excellent. Each Tuesday morning we sort and prepare the vegetables and fruit for transport to the 11 distribution centres of Voedselbank Nederland. From there the veggies and fruits are added to the food packages and distributed.
