Build a sandwich, break a record and help us raise the issue of Food Insecurity

One of the biggest challenges facing our nation today is the constant plight of hunger and the shortage of food. According to the United Nations, over 2 million South Africans survive on only one meal a day! Over 2,5 million children in our country are living below the food poverty line. You may ask yourself: “What can be meaningfully done to address this issue? How do we go about changing this reality? Where do we start?”

The DO MORE FOUNDATION (founded by RCL FOODS), has to date provided over 4 million meals to people in need. But on 16 October, World Food Day, we’d like to make our biggest statement yet.

We’re aiming to set a new WORLD RECORD: to make ONE Hundred Thousand Sandwiches in ONE hour. And we need your help.

Whether you’re rolling up your sleeves and grabbing that butter knife, spreading the word on your pages, or helping to create awareness by joining the conversation online, we’d love you to get involved. You’ll be in good company too. We have over 40 organisations on board at more than 40 different sites (only 3 public events) across the country.  This is one of South Africa’s biggest corporate collaborations, so you can’t afford to miss out.

Volunteers can register to participate at 3 public events:

  1. Mpumalanga public event taking place at Riverview Prep, Malelane : https://browniepoints.africa/opportunities/219?title=help-us-break-a-world-record-at-the-nkomazi-malelane-site-event

Together we can help raise awareness about South Africa’s food insecurity problem and its effects on our young children. Join the DO MORE FOUNDATION for World Food Day on 16 October and let’s make history.
