Ironically, the earth produces enough food for everyone, but an estimated 1 billion people go hungry every day. Why? Some areas have a surplus of food while others have a shortage, and fully one third of all food produced is wasted.
You can do your bit to balance this out by supporting FoodBank SA, a non profit organisation that tries to bridge that gap by linking 11 million hungry South Africans with food suppliers - whether they are retailers, farmers, charities or community organisations.
The Lunch Bunch is FoodBank's way of helping you to fight hunger - fast! On Tuesday, 16th October, think of your fellow South Africans who don't have anything to eat. Please don't buy lunch for yourself - instead pack a lunch at home and donate the money you've saved to FoodBank. To donate, go to the website and click on the 'Join the Lunch Bunch' button. FoodBank SA can provide a nourishing meal to someone who really needs it for R1.70. That means you could feed 10 people for R17, the price of an inexpensive takeaway. And of course, R34 gives a square meal to 20 hungry people.
