“We are proud to announce the donation of 710 126 meals during this year’s World Hunger Month to FoodForward SA. This was our fifth year of World Hunger Month and we have successfully in the past five years donated over 3,6 million meals to our communities,” says Siglinda Losch,  Group Sustainability Manager, for Earth Lover’s, the CSI arm of Food Lover’s Group.
“Aside from our growers contributing to food security for South Africans and export income for our economy, Two-a-Day, our parent company’s apple and pear processing and packing facility in Grabouw, recently successfully delivered 1000 meals to needy people during their Mandela Day outreach. Our Ceres grower owners at Ceres Fruit Growers Fighting Hunger 2have also made massive donations to try to address the plight of the hungry - not only in their own communities but also by supporting hard-hit communities as far afield as Merweville in the Karoo. Tru-Cape and our growers are proud to be able to make this essential contribution,” says Tru-Cape Managing Director, Roelf Pienaar.
