This, the organisers said, is building on the Nairobi gathering in November 2022, and will be a further opportunity for food banks from across Africa to gather in-person to discuss common themes and challenges facing food banks and learn from the experience and expertise of peers. As food banking continues to advance in Africa, we look forward to welcoming new GFN members to the Africa food bank community at this event.

The organisers also anticipate robust conversations, diverse idea sharing, and fostering a greater sense of community amongst food banks on the continent. In addition to conversational sessions at the event hotel, participants will have the opportunity to visit the facilities of Food for All Africa, a member of the GFN Africa Accelerator since 2019, and learn about their programs as part of the main summit agenda.
