In the true spirit of Mandela Day, you made our food drive and packing event a huge success!
Thank you to all the Pick n Pay customers who purchased basic foods and the 5200 people who volunteered their 67 minutes to pack the food, as well as all of our event partners and sponsors, especially Pick n Pay. Through your generosity we were able to collect enough food to make nearly half a million meals!
With your help FoodForward SA is able to serve more vulnerable people in the coming months. The food will be distributed to our national network of 530 beneficiary organisations that reach over 200,000 people daily across the country. We would like to give a special mention to Danone, Kelloggs and RCL for their donations of food. THANK YOU!
We look forward to seeing you all at our 2020 Mandela Day Food Drive and packing event.
FoodForward SA would like to sincerely thank the following donors for their financial contribution to our 2019 Mandela Day Food Drive: BMM Testlabs South Africa, Consol Glass, Mirabilis Engineering, Old Mutual, Philip Morris International, Rothschild & Co, Sandton Plant Hire, Santam and VOLVO, as well as those individuals who made donations in their private capacities.
