Nervous about running out of food during the Covid-19 lockdown,some people decided to stock up on tinned foods. Fast food restaurant,Nando’s is enabling citizens to swop their tinned for some lekker chips which can be ordering through the Nando’s mobile app or online for delivery or collection .The tins will be donated to underprivileged South Africans.
The aim of the Nando’s Tin for Tjips initiative is to help those in need by collecting your panic-bought tins of food and redistributing them to hungry children. Nando’s has joined forces with Joint Aid Management (JAM), who will distribute the tinned food to South Africa’s most vulnerable through its well-established network of charitable organisations that focus on taking care of pre-school children through Early Childhood Development centres.
Doug Place, Chief Marketing Officer for Nando’s South Africa, said “We suspect that Mzansi pantries are filled with tins of food we don’t really need. So, we thought we’d offer a way to donate them to those that do in return for a portion of Nandos’ freshly prepared chips. At Nando’s, we believe that all South Africans deserve a life well fed. We hope that Tin for Tjips will play its part in making that belief a reality. After all, the government isn’t looking to put chips in you, but we are happy to”.
So, what do you need to do? If you have tins in your cupboard and want to exchange them for Nando’s chips .Chips lovers must make sure that:
The tin contains actual food (Shoe polish doesn’t count).
It has its original label.
It hasn’t expired and won’t for at least another 3 months.
The tin is not damaged in any way.
