An apple a day helps feed a hungry child

As part of the World Hunger Day awareness campaign, Food Lovers Market and Tru Cape have partnered with Food Forward SA in helping feed hungry families in South Africa.

According to Andrew Millson, head of sustainable development at Food Lovers Market says the campaign has been running since 1 March and will end on World Hunger Day.

For every bag of Tru-Cape apples we contribute a meal to Food Forward SA to feed one of the hungry children they provide meals to.

Food Forward SA has a number of NGOs and schools they provide meals to and these are children who are in dire need of these meals, says Millson.

So far, through this initiative, about 270 000 meals have been provided.
