We implement a model called food banking. Retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, farmers and growers partner with us to recover their edible surplus food and distribute it responsibly to provide greater access to food for vulnerable groups across our country.
Food drives are a really popular activity among individuals, families, communities and groups within the workplace it is all about having fun whilst getting involved in the fight against hunger!
Food for All Africa has regularly-scheduled food drives throughout the year, but people are welcome to hold their own food drive at any time of the year. We welcome all types of non-perishable food products that everyone should have access to.
Collect only non-perishable food items.
Please check the expiry dates on all products, Food for All cannot accept any expired products
Do not collect any cooked items/meals
Develop a theme – a themed food drive for a special occasion or celebrated day will help with marketing your food drive and add some excitement.
Call your nearest Food for All branch – let us know you are planning a food drive and find out what we need most.
Set up a collection point – a medium sized box works best, properly identify the boxes and place them in highly visible places that are convenient for people to donate.
Promote your food drive – advertise your food drive through whatever means you have available e.g. fliers, e-mails, Facebook and Twitter. Include the dates of the drive and locations of the collection boxes.
Arrange for transportation – arrange collection or delivery of the food with the nearest Food for All branch
