Organizations that offer food aid only occasionally

e.g. farmers’ wives’ associations, usually have the greatest difficulties with food management.

In this we recommend:

Build a base of volunteers who can help when there is a lot of food or involve people in need, thus activating them professionally

  • Choose a tool for efficient communication with people in need, e.g. through messengers, Facebook groups – consider a tool for mass texting
  • Distribute parcels to people who are unable to collect them themselves
  • In the case of unusual products (e.g. in Poland, unusual products are seafood, tropical fruits, vegan products) attach a recipe for using the unusual product or talk to the recipients
  • Organizing culinary workshops using products that often appear in packages, which will encourage recipients not to waste and experiment
  • It is good practice for all parcel forwarding organisations
