Almost 20 million people go to bed hungry each and every day, and 30 million run out of money every month leaving them food vulnerable.

Yet 10 million tons a third of food produced goes to waste every year in South Africa, he says.

We rescue food that would have gone to landfill and take it to orgs who help feel those in need
