Food to Starving
while a further 14 million are at risk
Since the start of lock down (within 8 months), we have been able to distribute 6,500 tons of food, amounting to 26 million meals, to vulnerable communities across the country. Thank you donors!
We are excited that we can now also expand our reach into Limpopo, Mpumalanga, and the Northern Cape Provinces, procure much-needed basic foods, and gear up operationally. Your support has made this possible.

BENEFICIARIES SERVED THROUGH OUR DAILY NETWORK
A recent survey found that one in three adults go to bed hungry because of unemployment and the subsequent loss of income. Fear, depression and discouragement are beginning to set in for many as social distress leaves them hopeless.
FoodForward SA continues to be inundated with requests for food support from all over the country. We are now supporting more than 1,000 Beneficiary Organisations (BOs), reaching nearly 500,000 vulnerable people directly (and an estimated 1,5 million people indirectly) with food parcels to households.
The COVID-19 impact on our economy and food insecurity will be with us for at least 18 – 24 months. With this in mind, FoodForward SA is taking a two-year view to make sure that we create better access to healthy food for more than 750,000 people directly (and 2 million indirectly) through a network of 1,500 registered beneficiary organisations working in vulnerable communities across South Africa, including our most rural communities.
We need your help! To ensure that we can continue to support our expansion, we need a further R43mn over the two-year period. Your partnership will help us reach this goal so that we can address the problem of hunger at scale.
In partnership with various corporates, we provide nutritious breakfast cereals and milk to 50,000 children in crèches, as well as primary and secondary schools.
In order to ensure greater access to food for vulnerable rural communities, FoodForward SA developed the Mobile Rural Depot (MRD) model. We select vulnerable rural communities across South Africa, and we provide beneficiary organisations with monthly food provisions.
The supply chain is a huge barrier to entry for underprivileged youth. In an effort to reduce youth unemployment and equip them with skills and experience, we started a SETA-accredited 6 month Supply Chain Youth Internship, and aim to get them absorbed by one of our supply chain partners.

supporting Joy Special Educare
For the past 30 years, Joy Special Educare, situated in Tafelsig in Mitchells Plain, has cared for disabled children with multiple disabilities. The Centre was started by a group of working parents who did not have a safe place for their children during the day.
