Launched in 2010, the 1919 Food Bank program furthers the effect and impact of CCRA work to help Taiwan's poorest and most disadvantaged overcome adversity, reorient their lives and become productive, positive members of society.
1919 Service Center volunteers deliver 1919 Food Bank care packages directly to the homes of those in need. This enhances the effect of CCRA outreach efforts and avoids the need for low-income families to expend their limited resources on travel to and from distribution centers.
At the end of Dec 2023, through the 899 1919 Food Bank service center across Taiwan , issued a total of 304,254 Food packages, helping 74,112 families. The total value of the goods is more than 797 million NTD. Since 2015, a total of 12 1919 physical stores have been established, serving an average of 600 vulnerable families per month.
