SA Harvest is proud of what it has achieved in the last three years. We have delivered just over 40 million nutritious meals to those who need it most from our branches in DBN, CPT, JHB and now in the extremely impoverished area of Lusikisiki in the Eastern Cape.
Lusikisiki represents SA Harvest’s evolving strategy, which is to integrate our systemic solutions to hunger with our feeding of hungry people on a charitable basis. Our mission is to end hunger in our country, and we understand that while charity is absolutely essential at this time, it does not in itself end hunger. What is required is charitable feeding IN CONJUNCTION with sustainable and systemic solutions, which include the promotion of entrepreneurial skills among our beneficiaries and the public at large; working with government, provincial and municipal structures to help fulfil the constitutional obligations of sections 27 and 28 of our constitution and, in general, to help create conditions where South Africans have greater access to affordable, nutritious food.
To this end we have created a structure, SA Harvest Entrepreneurial Incubator, which employs qualified unemployed youth to work in our warehouses giving them the opportunity to learn the skills of running a logistics company like our own while also attaining a SAQA accredited diploma in Agribusiness. Ultimately our aim is to reduce reliance on charity and to enable young men and women, and our beneficiaries to become food sovereign, independent of charity and able to fend for themselves in a dignified way in the future.
But we cannot do this work without funds. Unfortunately, we are currently experiencing fairly significant donor fatigue, which is quite worrying. for a various reasons. It is crucial for the NGO space that donors realise that the work of feeding people and of helping people to ultimately become independent of charity requires constant financial support and not only in times of overt crisis. The fact is hunger in South Africa is a constant and growing crisis, which can be resolved!
So please donate! Twenty million South African men, women and children who are dangerously food-vulnerable need your help!
