The hard work and success of two Gauteng community food gardens are being celebrated on the Shoprite Group’s truck fleet.
- Kenneth Siyiba, an 80-year-old volunteer at Suthani Community Food Garden.
The garden, situated in Alexandra, is run by pensioners who are determined to feed themselves and their community.
The Crisis Community Centre in Boksburg is another initiative featured on the delivery trucks. At the centre they care for orphaned and vulnerable children while their food garden feeds 700 beneficiaries.
- Elaine Appies, founder of the Crisis Community Centre.
These trucks will be added to the nineteen rebranded delivery trucks that are already traversing the length and breadth of South Africa.
Their primary function is to deliver fresh produce at the lowest prices. But they are also moving billboards that share the stories of the heroes with whom Shoprite partner to act for change.
- Lunga Schoeman, Shoprite CSI spokesperson.
