We distribute hot meals at Ueno Park each Saturday. We have two shifts on Friday (morning and afternoon) for preparation.
On Saturday we have three shifts
We provide emergency groceries to households in need of assistance. We have three distribution methods:
We receive food donations from manufacturers, importers, retailers, and farmers for distribution to welfare agencies, nonprofits and faith-based groups that provide social services to those in need.
We promote food banking in Japan and in the region through various activities. Since 2008 we annually conduct a “Food Bank Caravan” in which we travel throughout Japan visiting local food banks and communities interested in starting a food bank. We have also assisted in the development of food banking in the Philippines since 2007 both in providing technical assistance and sending aid. We have a standing memo of understanding with the Republic of the Philippines Department of Social Welfare & Development (DSDW).
