We help to fight hunger in the following ways:
As part of fighting hunger in disadvantaged communities, we invest significantly in community food gardens to support long-term food security and economic access.
We provide immediate hunger relief to those in need with our mobile soup kitchens. It’s an effective way to deliver nutritious meals to beneficiary organisations.
We donate surplus food and goods from our stores and distribution centres to local, verified beneficiaries. This initiative aligns with our strategy to reduce food waste.
In the face of disasters like fires or floods, we do what we can and work swiftly to provide food and essential goods to those affected.
Through our continued support for community food gardens, we give thousands of people access to nutritious food. Currently, this initiative takes place in about 100 communities across South Africa and three communities in Zambia. The primary aim of our food gardens is to produce nutritious food through bio-intensive production; however, we also focus on and support learning, production and social gardens.
