The Food Lover’s Market Earth Lovers team has been kept super busy during this very difficult time where so many people needing help across the country. As the team wasn’t able to assist all the wonderful charity organisations out there, they chose to partner with Meals on Wheels to make it possible for customers to donate to a worthy cause.
Our customers were able to donate food to Meals on Wheels, a community service that operates from 700 service points throughout South Africa. To date, customers have donated more than 120 trolley loads of food to those who are most in need. Meals on Wheels collect the food donations and use them to prepare meals in their community kitchens and distribute these to the elderly in need.
The Earth Lovers team thank the 12 stores that participated in this wonderful initiative – you are all superstars! A special thanks to the teams at Gateway, Bruma and Comaro Crossing and a very big shout out to Leilanie van der Westhuizen at FLM Somerset West who made it her personal mission to fill those trolleys, filling more than 30 at last count. She even encouraged all the colleagues in the store to club together and donate. These are our values in action!
