FoodFlow launched in March of 2020 in response to pre-lockdown resturant and school closures, enabling small-scale farmers and fishers to viably feed their local communities during the COVID-19 hunger crisis.
To date, FoodFlow has paid over R2.3 million in purchases benefiting 400+ farmers and fishers and delivered more than twenty thousand harvest bags to 30+ communities in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo.
FoodFlow believes in supporting food livelihoods: that means feeding people in a crisis isn’t just about getting food into communities, it is also about considering where that food comes from and who is benefiting from the supply chain.
FoodFlow’s model financially supports the farmers “upstream” to sustain their businesses, pay their staff, and support their own families, while also quickly getting food to those families “downstream” who are experiencing increased food insecurity.
FoodFlow purchases vegetables and protein directly from small-scale farmers and fishers using donor funding. Food Flow then matches the farmer with a community organization in their vicinity that distributes harvest bags or cooks meals for their beneficiaries.
Your sponsorship of a bag of produce for R128 provides fresh, nutritious food to a family in communities facing increased food insecurity, all while additionally supporting your local small-scale farms and fishing communities.
