Mandela Day

FoodForward SA and Pick n Pay are partnering to unite a nation around Mandela Day, with the goal of raising 1,000,000 meals. The national food drive will help stock FoodForward SA’s warehouses across the country with staple foods during winter, ensuring that the 600 Beneficiary Organisations they serve can continue to provide warm meals to the 250,000 people they feed every day.

On Mandela Day, 18 July, companies can encourage their staff to spend 67 minutes at the Packing Events taking place at Gallagher Convention Centre to sort and pack the donated groceries into food hampers for distribution to our Beneficiary Organisations during winter.
