Food Bank Culture

This year again, the Van Gogh Museum, together with the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and others, are contributing to Food Bank Culture. In this context, the museums provide tickets each month to the Food Bank handout points in Amsterdam.

People who use the Food Bank are often also deprived of art and culture. On the initiative of the Orkater theatre group, Food Bank clients have, since December 2012, been able to collect tickets for unsold seats from a large number of theatres on the day of the performance. The tickets for the Amsterdam museums which have been handed out since last year form a welcome supplement to this.

The Mesdag Collection
Since the participation of the three museums on the Amsterdam Museumplein, more and more museums, both in Amsterdam and beyond, have joined Food Bank Culture. For example, tickets are also made available for the Mesdag Collection in The Hague, which is managed by the Van Gogh Museum.
