|Says Kate Marais, CSI manager for Food Lover’s Market: “We hit our target of feeding 1 million South Africans in 2020. We would love to meet and exceed that total this year. With 30 million food-insecure South Africans, of which 14 million go to bed hungry every day, it’s easy to understand that hunger and food insecurity is a very serious issue in our country.”|
By partnering with FoodForward SA, Food Lover’s Market and the Hunger Month partners hope to reach and exceed 1 million meals through its “contribute-a-meal” mechanism. Any of the partner products, purchased between 1 May and 28 May 2021, will contribute the required R0.85c needed to provide one meal to a hungry person through FoodForward SA.
