Established in 1996, the Federación Española de Bancos de Alimentos (Spanish Federation of Food Banks, or FESBAL) coordinates the efforts and activities of various localized food banks across all of Spain. FESBAL manages relationships with central government agencies, international organizations and other non-profit organizations and companies that provide food assistance.
With a 99% volunteer staff and headquarters based in Madrid, FESBAL has been recognized with numerous awards, the most recent of which include: The Award of the Prince of Asturias for Concord in October 2012, and The Gold Medal of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in May 2012.
