To help fight hunger across South Africa, McCain Foods (SA) has partnered with FoodForward SA in celebration of their 10th anniversary and our 20th anniversary. FoodForward SA is the largest food redistribution organisation in South Africa. They implement model called “food banking” where retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, farmers and growers partner to recover their edible surplus food and distribute it responsibly to provide greater access of food for vulnerable groups in our country.
Over the years, our partnership with FoodForwardSA has helped us reach over 200 000 beneficiaries who were able to get vital vegetable nutrients on their plates. We have been able to deliver over 100 tonnes of frozen product resulting in over 400 000 nutritious meals to hungry South Africans.
This year was no different, with help from you by following FoodForwardSA, sharing and commenting on our posts we have been able to deliver 100 000 meals to hungry South Africans during lockdown period. Due to your tremendous support, FoodForward SA has now expanded their reach into Limpopo Mpumalanga and Northern Cape where more vulnerable communities will now be able to receive the nutrition they need.
