FoodBank SA would like to say a BIG thank you to all our donors, partners, patron’s, beneficiaries and staff for the outstanding efforts in supporting the work done by FoodBank SA. We are fortunate to have your support and commitment.
With your help over the past year FoodBank SA has been able to make the following positive changes to our operations, ultimately reaching more hungry people:
- The cost per meal decreased from R1, 35 to R1, 19.
- We distributed in excess of 3, 8 million kilograms of food and this was sufficient to provide an estimated 12, 7 million meals.
- The beneficiary organisations we support have increased from 450 to 500.
- The beneficiary organisations we support now serve 115, 000 beneficiaries daily throughout South Africa.
- We hosted a number of successful events and campaigns such as the Mandela Day Hamper Packing event and the World Food Day Food Drive.
None of this would have been possible without your valuable support. We look forward to more successful initiatives with you and bridging the gap of hunger in South Africa.
Wishing you all a joyful festive season and a prosperous New Year.
