SUFFICIENT, NUTRITIOUS FOOD IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT
The lack of food security is one of the most urgent crises facing our country today.
Every day 18 million South African men, women and children go to bed hungry.
We live in a country that produces an abundance of fresh, nourishing food that could feed all our citizens, but one of the central problems
is that10 million tons of food goes to waste every year.
SA Harvest is creating a food rescue and distribution platform that will ultimately enable us to realise our mission to ensure that every South African is able to access adequate nutritious food on a daily basis. This platform is based on four pillars – food rescue, education, engagement and innovation.
Eliminating hunger and food waste through the redistribution of quality surplus food underpins everything we do. Our modus operandi is unique in South Africa as we use refrigerated vehicles, which means we can deliver PERISHABLE as well as NON-PERISHABLE food, enabling our recipient organisations to get a sufficient variety of food to provide full and nourishing meals to their people.
Raising awareness about food waste, food rescue, food security and nutrition, and driving a process that helps people to become food self-sufficient through sustainable and appropriate educational programmes and technologies.
Involving the community in reducing food waste and alleviating hunger. This is achieved mainly via a programme of volunteering where people and corporations donate their time to SA HARVEST’s efforts in the community.
As innovators in the food rescue space we constantly look for new solutions to combat food waste and hunger in South Africa.
