As a direct result of achieving our R50 million COVID-19 Appeal goal, FoodForward SA has been able to extend its footprint into Limpopo.
On 27 July, FoodForward SA facilitated our first official food distribution in Limpopo, expanding our reach to seven of South Africa’s nine provinces. “We provided quality surplus food to 20 vetted beneficiary organisations which collectively feed over 5,000 people,” says FoodForward SA Managing Director, Andy du Plessis.
“For now, we will undertake monthly trips from our Johannesburg branch to Polokwane, which will be the central depot where vetted beneficiary organisations will collect their food provisions. We will develop a permanent, physical presence in Polokwane once we have reached a critical mass.”
On 4 August 2020, FoodForward SA will extend its food distribution efforts the Northern Cape. For more details, keep an eye on our Facebook page.
