Celebrate Mandela Day with FoodBank SA

FoodBank SA invites your Company and staff members to contribute 67 minutes to help those in need

To commemorate former president Nelson Mandela and the sacrifices he made for South Africa and its people, FoodBank South Africa will be holding a meal and hamper packing event at our Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg warehouses. These events will happen in 67 minute slots from 9 am to 3 pm on 18 July 2016. Contribute your time and show your appreciation for the great man who moulded South Africa into the rainbow nation it is today.

You are invited to enter a team into FoodBank SA’s Mandela Day meal and hamper packing event and as a team see how many meals you can pack, and how many lives you can touch in 67 minutes.

Instead of being asked to bring food to the event, FoodBank SA asks that you make a contribution to the cost of rescuing donated food and the logistics behind the delivery of the hampers to those who need it most. The cost will be based on the number of people your company sends.

Spend your 67 minutes with FoodBank SA this Mandela Day and together we can reach even more of the 13.8 million South Africans vulnerable to food insecurity.

Can’t contribute 67 minutes?

Why not hold a food drive at your office or home? Collect non-perishable food from friends, family and colleagues in the weeks leading up to Mandela Day. Each food drive can be unique, whether you’re a large corporation, school, small church group or private family.
