Food bank autonomy – finding resources
The sourcing department is typically staffed by two people who bear the brunt of processing responsibility and the bulk of the coordination of its work. In fact, it is every worker and often volunteer who, from his own “geographical position” and through whatever role he has assumed, tries daily and in various ways to secure sponsorships in goods, services and monetary donations, in order to cover the enormous and extremely wide volume needs faced by the children cared for by the Association.
The BENJAMIN Child Support Society relies exclusively on financial donations from individuals and businesses as well as donations in kind (food). There is no government subsidy.
Αν If to the difficult conditions of the economic crisis, we also add the unbearable economic effects of the pandemic (quarantine, cancellation of charity events, closing of shops with BENJAMIN Coin boxes decrease in donations), then it is realized that it is necessary to find new resources for the best possible continuation of the work of supporting children in need.
Depending on whether you represent a business or whether you are an individual there are various ways to support the food bank and its long-term autonomy and sustainability in the ways listed next.
