Established in 2009 to address widespread hunger in South Africa, FoodForward SA connects a world of excess to a world of need by recovering quality edible surplus food from the consumer goods supply chain and distributing it to community organisations that serve the poor.
More than 80% of the food recovered is nutritious food. During the 2021/2022 financial year, we distributed 48 million meals and reached 875,725 people daily through a network of 2,225 beneficiary organisations, across South Africa.
This was achieved at a cost per meal of only R0,68, due to the tremendous support from donors, partners and volunteers. Volunteers can assist with food distribution to shelters, orphanages, schools and more.
