FoodBank SA is challenging you and your family this Family Day, to make a difference in the lives of those living without food in South Africa.
Family Day is a South African celebrated holiday, a day for families to come together to share a meal, or just enjoy some quality time together. FoodBank SA is calling on you and your family to step up and make a difference this Family Day by collecting non-perishable food items and donating them to FoodBank SA’s fight against hunger in South Africa. The national food drive will run from 28 March to 1 April, which is the perfect time for you and your loved ones to make a difference.
How to get involved
You can hold a food drive at your home or office and ask your colleagues, family and friends to join in.
To make sure that your Food Drive is a success FoodBank SA can provide you with the necessary information and material, such as posters and e-mail reminders for you to send out to friends and colleagues.
Food items that go further
Food that has a longer shelf life (non-perishables) make for great donations because they keep for longer.
Here are some suggestions for food donations:
- Rice, maize meal, samp and pasta
- Dried beans, lentils, tinned fish, soya mince, milk powder and peanut butter
- Canned fruit and canned mix vegetables
- Cooking oil, salt and sugar
For the safety of those we re-distribute to, FoodBank SA is unable to accept:
- Open packages
- Homemade food items
- Items that have expired
