Established in 2009 to address widespread hunger in South Africa, FoodForward SA connects a world of excess to a world of need by recovering quality edible surplus food from the consumer goods supply chain and distributing it to community organisations that serve the poor. More than 80% of the food recovered is nutritious food.

Our Vision: A South Africa without hunger.

Our Mission: To reduce hunger in South Africa by safely and cost-effectively securing quality food, and making it available to those who need it.

Our Programmes

FoodForward SA is the largest food redistribution organisation in South Africa. We implement a model called food banking. Retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, farmers and growers partner with us to recover their edible surplus food and distribute it responsibly to provide greater access to food for vulnerable groups across our country.
