Food Bank has started its operation as separate institution in Lithuania in 2001. It was the time when the charity fund „Initiatives of Lithuania and USA“ launched Food Bank charity programme. In order to help people in need Food Bank campaigns started to be organized in the cities of Lithuania. Hundreds of non-profit organizations and thousands of volunteers took part in the campaigns.

Food Bank not only supports the people in need of food but also is promoting sustainable food consumption, rational nutrition, and efficient usage of resources and is fostering public support in reducing poverty and protecting environment.
