39 Million People Relied on GFN Member Food Banks for Meals in 2021

Chicago, IL, USA, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) announced that food banks in 44 countries served 39 million people in 2021, demonstrating that need for food assistance is continuing at high levels in the face of rising food prices and disrupted supply chains.

The data is part of GFN's annual Network survey, and this year's responses emphasize the importance of a strong network of food banks in times of crisis.

"Communities around the world are facing hunger at unprecedented rates," said Lisa Moon, president and CEO of The Global FoodBanking Network. "Consistently, food banks are stepping up and using their unique expertise to connect millions of people to nutritious food."

The 39 million people who sought emergency food assistance is a 128 percent increase over 2019 pre–COVID levels of service. Additionally, about 54 percent of people were served regularly for more than three months during 2021 while 44 percent of people served visited food banks occasionally, temporarily, or for the first time due to a shift in economic circumstances.

More than three–fourths of people served by GFN member food banks live in emerging and developing market economies. Most of the people who visited GFN member food banks in 2021""about 24 million""live in Asia and Oceania. Another 8.8 million food bank visitors are from Latin America. Children ages 17 and under comprised more than a third of the total people served.

Food banks, on average, distributed 57 percent more food and grocery products than the previous year, despite sourcing challenges brought on by breakdowns in supply chains and other factors. The most commonly distributed products are fruits and vegetables""constituting 30 percent of what an average food bank provides.

While need for hunger relief has been unprecedented, so has the generosity and determination of people partnering within the Network. Nearly 317,000 people volunteered with GFN partner food banks, a 14 percent increase over 2020, providing more than 8 million hours of support.

2022 is already proving to be another challenging year for people facing hunger and food insecurity, with the Ukraine invasion compounding the continuing effects of the pandemic and leading to further rises in food prices. But food banks will continue to respond quickly and efficiently in the face of crises, leaning on the experiences of the past few years.

"Unfortunately, we are likely on the precipice of a global hunger crisis," said Moon. "Food banks will be central to the response. The lessons learned during the pandemic have strengthened the Network, better equipping us to provide ongoing services to children, individuals, and families in vulnerable situations."


About The Global FoodBanking Network:

The Global FoodBanking Network supports community–led solutions to alleviate hunger in more than 40 countries. While millions struggle to access enough safe and nutritious food, nearly a third of all food produced is lost or wasted. We're changing that. We believe food banks directed by local leaders are key to achieving Zero Hunger and building resilient food systems. For more information, visit foodbanking.org.

A UBI program initiated by Jax.Network is launched

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jax.Network, a blockchain company building an energy–standard monetary system, initiated a universal basic income (UBI) program via JaxCorp DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization created specifically for this purpose. The goals of a program are to alleviate poverty and replace other need–based social programs that potentially require greater bureaucratic involvement.

Run on smart contracts, the UBI initiative allows the DAO to distribute a minimum amount of funds to everyone who applies for it in a decentralized and secure way. Ideally, it is a guaranteed income that users receive to cover their basic needs, like food and shelter. At the moment, the first 10,000 people can get free $10 as an advance, which will be deducted from the future UBI payouts.

At the initial stages, the UBI amount is forecasted to be higher for early adopters. With the wider awareness of the program, it may decrease a bit; however, creators expect some people to join the program as donors and donate funds to sustain the relevant UBI level. As the UBI initiative is funded by the fees collected from transactions carried out in stablecoins created on the Jax.Money platform, higher volumes can also become a major booster of the UBI payouts in the future. Thus, everyone who supports UBI should switch to JAX Dollar (JAXUD) and JAX Rupee (JAXRE) in order to keep the work going.

"We aim at building a society, where individuals have the freedom to do whatever they choose, so long as they do not infringe upon other people's rights and liberties. Thus, UBI becomes a cornerstone for bringing our philosophical vision into life," Vinod Manoharan, the Founder of Jax.Network shared in a comment.

About Jax.Network

Jax.Network provides the technological infrastructure for a decentralized energy–standard monetary system. The Jax.Network blockchain is anchored to the Bitcoin network and issues two digital currencies JAX and JXN. JAX is a stablecoin pegged to the energy spent on mining, while JXN is an asset coin representing the value of the whole network. The Jax.Network team aims at making these coins a universal standard for the quantification of economic value.
