In September 2021, Mastercard continued with its humanitarian efforts, by selecting FoodForward SA as a beneficiary of their Spot Money campaign. During October, every time a consumer signed up for a Spot Money account, Mastercard donated three meals to FoodForward SA. Each time a consumer tapped, scanned or clicked to pay using their Spot Money App or transacted with their physical Spot Money card, Mastercard donated an additional meal to FoodForward SA. The campaign aimed at assisting to reverse the spiral of poverty by eliminating hunger, driving inclusion, and enabling and empowering those in need.
As a result of the campaign, Mastercard donated a total of 850,000 meals to FoodForward SA. We are grateful to Mastercard for partnering with FoodForward SA and helping to address food insecurity in this innovative way.
