This World Food Day (October 16) you were able help fill a hungry tummy by doing something you probably do quite regularly – sharing a food photo.
FoodForward SA is a national non-profit organisation that distributes food to hundreds of verified beneficiary organisations throughout South Africa.
KNORR hoped to to raise mass awareness about the food insecurity problem in South Africa by highlighting the importance of good nutrition and making food accessible to more people.
“Sadly one third of food produced in South Africa gets dumped in landfills while over 14 million people go hungry,” states FoodForward SA Managing Director Andy Du Plessis.
To mark the significance and spirit of World Food Day, Knorr and FoodForward SA had an exciting event planned for 16 October 2017 where supplied over 200 nutritious and delicious meals to children at the Pauline Podbrey Foundation in Khayelitsha Cape Town.
The Pauline Podbrey Foundation was established in 2009 and offers after school educational support and sports activities to children from the local community and provides them with a daily meal – sometimes their only meal of the day.
