Millions of South Africans go to bed on empty stomachs due to high levels of poverty.
Penny Appeal SA will be launching an innovative initiative to combat this as they look to feed the people of Durban.
The charity will be deploying a food truck in April which will provide hearty meals to the needy.
The project will officially launch on 4 April, but Penny Appeal SA has called on the public for its support ahead of that date.
The initiative will require the help of public donors to purchase meal tokens.
The tokens can be given to anyone to claim a meal at the food truck.
Two types of tokens will be made available – a single token will be orange in colour and the monthly one will be white.
A single meal token can be purchased for R20 and the monthly one will cost R600.
Good Things Guy reported that the charity’s CEO, Shahnaaz Paruk, will give donors peace of mind that their contributions aren’t being misused for illegal substances.
Briefly.co.za understands that Penny Appeal SA will roll out the idea in Cape Town and Johannesburg as well if the initial pilot project is successful.
