Every Tuesday&Wednesday night, the cooling boxes are filled so that the cooled food can be transported. It is teamwork and hard work; volunteers sort the food and fill the cooling boxes. Lifting heavier objects can sometimes be part of the activity.

Target group & impact

The Food Bank in Amsterdam provides 4500 food packages on a weekly basis in Amsterdam. These packages go to individuals and families living below the poverty line. Thanks to the Foodbank they can be provided with a safe food package.


This location is not easy to find when you visit it for the first time. This activity takes place in the cooling area of the Foodbank, so it will be cold during the activity. Please bring a warm coat, scarf, hat and gloves to the activity.
