Mandela Day Food Drive

Mandela Day Food Drive

This Mandela Day, The One Percent Movement, powered by Essentially Natural, aims to provide 2000 nutritious meals by the end of 2024 through our food-drive. We need just R6,700 to achieve this, thanks to the incredible smart food parcels from Maxiblend. Each parcel provides a delicious, one-pot, high-fibre and high-protein meal. We plan to distribute these parcels in the impoverished community of Fisantekraal.

The logic behind the One Percent Movement is simple: If we all nurture a culture of giving, the community as a whole will grow stronger and healthier. Whether your one percent is pocket change or thousands, the ripple effect of small acts of kindness shouldn’t be underestimated. 

We invite you - implore you - to join us in this mission, turning small contributions into significant change and ensuring fewer people go hungry. Just R67 provides 22 meals - math that we find astonishing and inspiring in equal measure, and proving our firm belief that a little truly goes a long way.

Together, we can make a powerful impact!
