Slider

Since the start of lock down (within 8 months), we have been able to distribute 6,700 tons of food, amounting to 27 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

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.

Warehouse Foodbanking

We source, collect, and store edible surplus food from the supply chain and redistribute this food to registered Beneficiary Organisations (BOs) across South Africa that use the groceries to prepare meals.

Second Harvest

Second Harvest is our outreach programme to commercial farmers, allowing them to donate their post-harvest surplus produce to fight hunger. Second Harvest has drastically improved the nutritional value of the food we recover. Where huge volumes are donated, we partner with manufacturers to produce shelf-stable products like jams and sauces.

FoodShare/Virtual FoodBanking

We developed our own digital technology platform called FoodShare that virtually connects beneficiary organisations to retail stores and food outlets for the regular collection and reporting of surplus food.

Our Beneficiary Organisations

Greyton Transition Town Uses
Surplus Food to Transform Lives

Every two weeks, locals from Greyton and Genadendal, in the Western Cape, bring their recyclable waste to Greyton Transition Town (GTT), in return for a voucher that they can swap for food, fruit and vegetables, shoes, clothes or stationery

How your donation is
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.

Your Donation Helps the
Witkoppen Clinic

Witkoppen Clinic is a non-profit organisation that provides high quality and high impact comprehensive primary healthcare and social welfare services to residents of informal settlements in Gauteng. The clinic services areas such as Diepsloot, Kyasands and Lion Park, where unemployment levels exceed 50% and more than 70% of residents live below the poverty line.
