FoodBank South Africa (FoodBank SA) is South Africa's national foodbanking network. The section 21 not-for-profit company* was established in 2009 and is a member of the Global Foodbanking Network.
|"A South Africa without hunger or malnutrition"|
FoodBank SA has food banks in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Port Elizabeth, and is in the process of rolling out more food banks countrywide.
Though relatively new to South Africa, food banking is practised in more than 40 countries worldwide. The tried-and-tested governance model used by FoodBank SA is based on broad representation. At national level, we work with government, food producers, manufacturers and retailers, and at grassroots level we collaborate closely with community leaders, faith-based organisations and non-profit organisations working directly with those who are food insecure.
