World Hunger Month 2021
WHAT IS HUNGER MONTH?
MAY 2021 marks our 2nd Hunger Month project at Food Lover’s Market Namibia, which is more relevant this ever before in the light of the COVID-19 crisis. S.P.E.S is the beneficiary of our World Hunger Month campaign, which kicks off on 1st May. Our Hunger Month campaign is built on World Hunger Day is an initiative created by The Hunger Project to advocate for the sustainable end of hunger and poverty.
In 2020, our collaboration with our partners resulted in over 1 000 000+ meals in Southern Africa donated to S.P.E.S charity (NAMIBIA) & Food Forward (South Africa). This year we are aiming to fund another 1 million meals and hopefully MORE, in Southern Africa. Our partners’ contributions include TRU-CAPE apples or pears, SIMPL juice. When their participating products* (listed below) are purchased in-store these products each go towards contributing a meal to a family in need through S.P.E.S charity.
On 28th May 2020, World Hunger Day, Food Lover’s Market will donate 1% of our turnover to this campaign. We are continuing to support them via our distribution centres and are aiming to donate 1 000 000 meals in the month of May, in Southern Africa.
In addition, we are continuing to support the organisations that are linked to each of our stores. These organisations are committed to the care of children, including looking after their nutritional needs. Each store supplies fresh fruit and vegetables to ensure that the children are well-fed, especially through this difficult time.
Every participating product* purchased during the month of May is N$1.80 donated to S.P.E.S which will provide a meal to those in need. This is how we aim to donate 1 000 000 meals in the month of May, in Southern Africa.
