The covid pandemic was a major challenge for all sectors in 2021. Despite this, at the Food Bridge vzw, we were still able to organize our annual events; Africana Flavours, African Diaspora Agrofood Forum and Foodcation BXL.
We also successfully completed the Humanitas Project (), an anti-racism project subsidized by the Equal Opportunities Department of the ministry of Justice Belgium.
Irrespective of the challenges posed by the pandemic, we were able to continue the training of rural African farmers in Nigeria and Ghana; and also the Helping Hand project, our feeding program in Belgium.
We were able to achieve all these and more because of the dedication of our volunteers and the support of our partners. We thank all the people and organizations that support our work and look forward to greater collaborations in 2022.
The Food Bridge vzw is looking for volunteers and interns to work on some of its projects in 2022.
