In response to the current global pandemic affecting poverty-stricken South Africans living below the breadline, The Big Food Drive by Jeremy Loops is a feeding drive aimed at serving 50,000 meals during the lockdown.

Initially setting out to raise R100,000 to provide 10,000 meals, The Big Food Drive tripled its target, raising R300,000 in just 24 hours. Now the aim is to raise R500,000.

I’m so excited to finally announce The Big Food Drive, our plan to provide at least 10,000 meals to poor South Africans who have been pushed to desperation due to coronavirus-related lockdown. Most of you know this has been on my mind for some time now and I’ve dedicated all JL resources over the last few weeks to make a difference in this area. Our neighbours are starving and I believe this community is powerful enough to make a significant difference in people’s lives. If you’re moved to donate, I would inspire you to do so. Every penny helps. I would also encourage everyone, whether you can contribute or not, to help us spread this message far and wide! Tag in your 10 closest friends or anyone you think will resonate with this message. Your parents, your grandparents, the whole clan. Share this post by WhatsApp, by email, by text. You can even do the unthinkable and phone people to tell them about this 😂! If ever I’ve been able to motivate you to do anything, let this be that moment. This moment right now, this initial impact moment, will shape the trajectory and long term success of this campaign in ways I cannot fully explain. So please, don’t hold back in amplifying this message as well supporting financially if able. If you have any questions, feel free to hit me in the comments. Otherwise, hit the link in my bio and go donate! Thank you everyone. #jthebigfooddrive #tbfd #covid_19 #aid #helpinghands #feedthehungry #community #communityaction #starving #foodaid #aid #southafrica #capetown #jeremyloops
