In March 2020 the nation went into complete lockdown due to COVID-19 and the most vulnerable among us, like children normally fed though a school feeding scheme; the homeless, elderly and disabled - were left even more vulnerable than before. There was a massive need to bring relief where it was needed most, and Feed the Nation was born. It has since become a full-fledged Foundation making a daily difference across South Africa. With just R21, someone can be fed for a week. So far, thanks to the generosity of Pick n Pay customers, corporates, suppliers, local and international donors, the Foundation has been able to distribute over 28 million meals and raised over R135 million!
Join the Foundation by giving a 'helping Rand' so that it can continue to Feed the Nation, together.
