JOHANNESBURG - FoodForward SA says it aims to donate a million meals over Mandela Day.

The organisation has identified 600 charities as beneficiaries.

She says the donations will go a long way in assisting the vulnerable and those in need.

“We want South African to come out and work with us to address this problem. All the information they need is on our website.”

In partnership with various stakeholders, it implements an ecosystem that uses surplus food as a catalyst for social change.
