Food rescue organisation SA Harvest has celebrated its second anniversary, coinciding with two major milestones, the delivery of 11 million meals to hungry people and the imminent launch of a branch in the Eastern Cape.

Alan Browde, founder and CEO of SA Harvest, says that the delivery of the 11 million meals went way beyond the organisation’s initial expectations for the first two years. He says the most significant milestone in the journey has been the relationships they have formed with food donors, benefactors and the more than 200 beneficiary organisations who feed hungry people every day.

SA Harvest operates in six provinces, with branches in Gauteng, Western Cape, KZN, and now George, from which the Eastern Cape operations will be run. Browde notes that the Eastern Cape has always been on SA Harvest’s radar as it is one of the most depleted regions in the country.

The rescuing and delivering of millions of meals over two years has required the development of an extensive logistics network, powered by a highly effective tech platform. Once fully implemented, the platform will provide SA Harvest with technology that enables efficiency in the rescue of surplus food or food nearing end-of-shelf life. It will also facilitate compliance with food safety guidelines. The organisation recently partnered with software solutions company Synthesis to develop a tool that gives people a voice in the #UnionAgainstHunger campaign.

Browde says SA Harvest is a food rescue initiative, the mission of which is to end hunger in South Africa.
