Food Bank Azabu
To reduce food loss and to have everyone get to eat enough!
Gathering surplus food in the community and deliver them to people in need. Starting from what each can do.
Collected foods will be delivered to the needy, through organizations such as Tokyo Food Banks.
*Food Bank Azabu does not distribute food to individuals.
Do you know that the number of households in need of food support is increasing?
There are many people in Tokyo who are unable to eat enough food due to various reasons.
In recent years, the number of families who cannot make a living solely on government support is increasing due to the Covid-19 recession and high prices.
On the other hand!
In Japan, approximately 5.23 million tons of food loss is generated annually (based on 2021 guidelines), which is equivalent to about 7,200 two-ton cleaning trucks everyday.
This means that each person throws away the equivalent of a bowl of rice (114g) per day.
