More than 13.8 million South Africans go hungry every day. FoodBank SA collects edible surplus food from manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, and redistributes this food to hundreds of verified NPO’s that collectively feed thousands of hungry people daily.
Our vision is ‘a South Africa without hunger’.
Turfhall Cheshire Home provides care to 60 severely physically disabled people from previously disadvantaged communities. By receiving help from FoodBank SA, they free up funds to provide specialised care needed by their residents.
The Carpenters Shop
A group of 17 formerly unskilled people are learning skills such as carpentry and auto details, supplemented by two nutritious meals a day from FoodBank SA, while attending the Carpenter Shop.
St Monica’s Elderley Home
The food provided by FoodBank SA has allowed 100 formerly destitute older people of St Monica’s to receive three nutritious meals a day. With St Monica’s monthly grocery bill substantially reduced, they now have funds available for developing infrastructure.
Little Peoples Den
Through partnership with FoodBank SA, hungry children at the Little People’s Den in Milnerton now receive nourishing meals at school. The money saved on food is spent on taking the children on fun and educational outings.
