Beers for Africa

SAB has released an 8 pack of iconic African beer from different countries across Africa.  They hope to export to global markets so consumers as far afield as the United States and China can enjoy these unique African beers.

As part of this new release the breweries have decided to team up with ‘Rise Against Hunger Africa’. This is to make sure that students are being fed. They hope to raise enough to have reached 1 million meals by 2018.

Rise Against Hunger Africa is an international, non-governmental organisation which packs and distributes meals to people living in poverty. For every beer pack sold, three students will receive a nutritious, wholesome meal.

The International Mandela Day 2017

This year, Rise Against Hunger Africa will be part of the Global Movement to Eradicate Hunger on the First International Mandela Day.  Further, in order to live the legacy, Rise Against Hunger Africa will be hosting Meal Packaging Events from the 13 July to the 19 July 2016 across 7 cities in South Africa. The theme “Follow the Sun” will see the first meal packing event commence in the East with Rise Against Hunger Malaysia and end in the West with Rise Against Hunger US.

Rise Against Hunger Africa is once again proud to host Meal Packing Events around the country in celebration of the legacy of Nelson Mandela.

These events are aimed at Corporates who want to give their employee’s volunteering opportunities to make a difference for 67 minutes during the month of July.

Events will be held in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, East London, Pretoria and Pietermaritzburg.

Corporates wanting to participate will send a team of 20 volunteers to their preferred venue to pack meals for 67 minutes. These events are fun, rewarding, suitable for all staff and the result of your 67 minutes makes a huge difference in a child’s life.

Each team will pack around 3 200 meals in their time slot which will feed up to 15 children, 5 meals a week for an entire year.
