May 8, 2017
From May until August 2017 Shoprite and Checkers customers can donate R5 or more at any till-point to help fight hunger in South Africa.
All the proceeds raised with our #ActforChange Fund will be donated to FoodForward SA – a non-profit organisation that feeds 250 000 South Africans every day.
Did you know?
- More than 14 million South Africans go hungry every day.
FoodForward SA assists 600 organisations who fight hunger every day.
- One third of food produced in South Africa goes to waste.
FoodForward SA helps to minimise this by partnering with organisations such as Shoprite to utilise our surplus food. In addition we will also be donating funds raised via our #ActforChange Fund to FoodForward SA.
- It costs FoodForward SA R0.86c to feed one person per day.
Every R5 donated to the #ActForChangeFund will ensure one hungry person is fed for almost a week. A donation of R300 can feed someone for a year.
This means each donation, even as little as R5, aids FoodForward SA to prepare and deliver healthy meals to over 250 000 people every day.
Customers who wish to make a donation can do so at any Shoprite or Checkers till point across South Africa.
This is just one of the ways we #ActForChange. See our other initiatives HERE.
