Details In this research, we investigated food bank activities in Japan, France Republic, USA, Korea, and revealed the role that food bank activities play in support of daily needy people. Administrative support for Japanese food bank activities is limited, but the number of food banks is increasing. In France, the food bank activity that was born in the late 1980s was incorporated as part of the food support policy for deprived people with assistance from the EU and the government. In the United States, as the public's food-in-security problem emerges, food bank have become popular for the purpose of supplementing the shortage of food support policy. In SouthKorea, food banks have been developed led by the government, but private food bank activities are also seen.
