14 million South Africans go hungry every day,
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.

COVID-19 UPDATE

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.

OUR INITIATIVES

Large-scale Feeding Programmes

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.

Mobile Rural Depots

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.

Supply Chain Youth Internship

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.

Phoenix Survival Centre:
Empowering Women and Uplifting Communities

Phoenix Survival Centre (PSC) is one of FoodForward SA’s 1,250 beneficiary organisations (BOs) and one of 150 that our Durban branch serves across KwaZulu-Natal. Although Caroline Govender and her husband established the non-profit organisation in 2009 as a home for abused, abandoned and destitute women, it now also serves the needs of the less privileged in order to help alleviate poverty.
