Asia-Pacific – Looking Ahead – Food Banking in the Post-COVID-19 World

This regional skill sharing session will be the first in a series of quarterly meetings which will facilitate peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and skill sharing for all the GFN Network food banks in the Asia Pacific region. Each session will take a deeper look into a specific topic area, hear from select food banks, and allow time for questions and open discussion.

This first session entitled, Asia-Pacific – Looking Ahead – Food Banking in the Post-COVID-19 World, will feature three food bank leaders from the region discussing how food banks can position themselves to support the recovery from the pandemic, and how the food banking landscape might look different post-COVID-19.
