Riverside Foundation

Riverside Food Banking

Riverside food bank is a Recovery and redistribution organization in Ghana under Riverside Foundation. We implement a model called food banking. Retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, farmers and growers, partner with us to recover their edible surplus food and distribute it responsibly to provide greater access to food for vulnerable groups across our country. 

Riverside food bank has regularly-scheduled food drives throughout the year, but people are welcome to hold their own food drive at any time of the year. We welcome all types of non-perishable food products that everyone should have access to.
