"Food For All - Kadamandiya Food Bank" is a new initiate in Sri Lankan community.
Food For All - Kadamandiya Food Bank is a new initiate in Sri Lankan community. Food For All - Kadamandiya Food Bank is the first Food Bank in Sri Lanka. It is working to bridge the gap in supply chain by collecting surplus foods in anywhere and providing them to people in need. For that there should be a strong linkage with donors/sellers and beneficiaries. Due to limited resources, initially first virtual food bank was introduced as mobile applications. Physical Food Bank will be introduced in 2024.
There is a lot of surplus food and there are people who need more food, and the food wastage is high. But there is no link to get these two problems in to one stage.
Try to make a link between people who have surplus food and consumers who need more food. This is not a simple mechanism. So initially “Kadamandiya” organization will introduce mobile applications to makes this mechanism simple and try making link. But ultimate goal is to establish first physical food bank in Sri Lanka.
In every year food wastage is being around 30%-40%. So, this is ultimate task to reduce the food wastage and share surplus food to the people all around the country.
To ensure global and national food security by adopting sustainable food consumption as a solution for the food crisis which can be arisen in future.
Make the quality and safe food, which is discarded due to excessive production, reachable to the people in need.
