We Act to Make a Difference

The communities we interact with daily through our stores are at the core of our business and their well-being affects our success.

Our corporate social investment programme is designed to support our communities to help them grow and prosper.

Here are some of our #ActForChange stories:

#ActForChange Fund

The #ActForChange Fund was established in response to customers’ requests for a mechanism to make a difference in communities facing serious challenges or affected by natural disasters.

Donating money to the fund is as easy. Customers inform the cashier at the till that they want to add a donation to their purchase and it is processed by the cashier. Since inception in March 2016, customers have contributed R at our till points.

The Shoprite Group manages the fund on behalf of its customers. These donations currently go to the Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing a daily meal to orphaned and vulnerable children.

We support more than 100 community food gardens all over South Africa and in Africa, benefitting more than 23 600 people as part of our hunger relief programme.
