Woolworths Trust | Zero Hunger
SHARE THIS INSPIRING STORY ON
World Food Day envisages a #zerohunger world by 2030, and is urging action to promote the availability of healthy diets to every person in the world. Today, there is an estimated 820 million people who are undernourished, with even more people overweight or obese. In South Africa, we have high rates of both.
That’s why Woolworths has contributed around R5.8 billion towards a #zerohunger future in South Africa – by supporting FoodForwardSA to donate surplus food to over a thousand charities across the nation, partnering with EduPlant’s food gardening programme and other food security programmes – like a pilot partnership project with UNICEF and the Gauteng Departmemnt of Education.
Through its Farming for the Future initiative, Woolies is also helping to address the environmental impact of food production.
