dc.description.abstractThe study investigates the operation of the Italian food bank with respect to supply, logistics, and redistribution. In addition, managers' and volunteers' perspectives on social aspects of food redistribution are explored. In July 2016, twelve in-depth interviews with food bank managers and volunteers were conducted. The interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim and analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Results show that the Italian food bank relies on three main food donors, the European Union, food wholesalers, and food retailers. These donations are redistributed to other charitable organizations. The charitable organizations adjust their operations to the beneficiaries' needs, taking into account refugees and different religious groups. Volunteers reported mixed emotions and experiences with foodbank beneficiaries. They explained that some food bank users show gratitude, other users feel ashamed because of their situation.
